The LENA Project: IC Less Plastic

Plastic pollution contributes to health issues, wildlife endangerment, and climate change.  We
are working to reduce plastic waste in our community.  This effort began with a group of local
preschool-age children who wanted to make a difference for our Earth and its animals.  The LENA
Project was created to carry on their young voices.  The LENA Project aims to reduce all single use plastic
waste in our community and empower others to create a healthier environment.  LENA stands for
Less/Empower/Notice/Act.  We encourage less single-use plastic consumption, we hope to empower
youth to use their voices, we encourage all people to notice their plastic use and to act in small ways to
reduce their plastic consumption.

Prompt Press

Publications: inspired by Gertrude Stein's Paris Salon, Prompt Press provides inspiration for and invites collaboration between writers and visual artists. We believe cross media collaboration is vital to the creation of boundary pushing new work, and necessary at a time when funding for the arts is low. Prompt provides a space for artists to connect, study each other's work, and publish within the national scene. In our exploration of how word becomes image, becomes word we invite book artists, who are already working in the space between image and word, to design our bi-annual print journal.

Workshops and Camps: supports teen artists and writers through workshops and publishing opportunities. Our “Image+Word” workshop for teens (offered in collaboration with IYWP) takes an interdisciplinary approach to teaching both visual art and writing. Our first month long “Image+Word” workshop for adults will be offered in March in collaboration with Iowa City Poetry. Prompt also partners with Iowa City Poetry to sponsor the monthly “Free Generative Writing Workshop.” Each month a new talented teacher/writers presents an original prompt, from which participants write and receive feedback.

Zombie March

Iowa City Zombie March, promoting Weird and Good in Iowa City since 2006.  We use our annual zombie march as a vehicle to raise awareness for (local) charities. We celebrate the horror genre by dawning gory make up and traipsing through town moaning and dragging appendages.
