the reading room :: e-newsletter #78

Hello everyone,

So now we're two years old, we have a new coffee machine and people came and danced. It was fun! Coffees are $3 with all proceeds going straight back to keep the reading room alive. So cheap.
Last Friday night we opened Sam Squires' exhibition. The reading room is now full of beautiful large scale abstract works - come down and have a look.

SALA opens next month and we have a number of events, including one by our own Kat Coppock, and Fiona Gardner. More info below.

Here's what's coming up at the reading room...

:: Tuesdays :: Dancing Room!
If you feel like dancing but can't wait for the weekend, try Dancing Room! Tuesday nights, with the location announced Guerilla style on their facebook page. Please note it is not an event that is facilitated by the Reading Room, but a separate commitee. The best way to find out where it is held each week is via their facebook page.

:: Fri 29th June - Tues 31st July ::
Sam Squires Exhibition 
"Abstract...formless barring the odd geometric shape...feelings about beauty and its variety and importance, all its links and personality that run between us...Hopefully you'll find in these works the small inner, personal forms of beauty that you recognize in yourself and can take from them."
Facebook event

:: Wednesday 4th July ::
July Meeting of the Adelaide Feminists Reading Group :: 6:30 - 9:30
So now we're going to dip our toes in the most female dominated genre of them all...the ROMANCE. The twist this month is that there is no set book *gasp!* Instead, we'll each be picking a romance novel, any romance novel, and bringing our own feminist interpretation of the book we've read. Trust me. It'll be fun.

:: Mondays & Tuesdays :: Happiness Sessions at the reading room ::
Monday evening, 6pm - 7:30 - Laughing Room
Could your life be any more awesome? An hour a week of serious laughter would almost certainly make it so. Laughter warm ups, laughing hard, and rolling around on the floor laughing are all guaranteed. Come along, even if you've never laughed before, we will make it easy for you. Mental training is like any other form of training - do it once, and it will be fun and have some benefits in your life. Do it often and you become fit, healthy and skillful. Do it often, and you wont be able to stop laughing.
Tuesday afternoon, 12:30 - 1pm - Tuesday lunch destress session
Take 30 minutes of your lunch hour to completely let go with a guided deep relaxation. Bring your workmates and friends.
Tuesday afternoon, 1pm - 1:30 - Inner peace and tranquility session
These personal development sessions will be different each week. This weeks session will involve a journey in our imagination, to a lake of tranquility. There we will cultivate our own inner unshakable ocean of peace.
Payment is by what you think the session is worth - our payment jar is anonymous, and no one is watching. Improving your life is priceless.

Quintessentially SALA; Choreographer & Visual Artist merge to forge a provoking installation on themes of psychological dependency. Four shows during the SALA period by Kat Coppock and Fiona Gardner will combine dance and paint to take you on a journey through states we create to survive.
This work is inspired by strangers; please contribute your stories. Each performance explores a different group of dependencies, and is listed in the headings above.
