Creative Growth Magazine
Thursday, February 21, 6–8pm
We welcome co-editors of Creative Growth Magazine
a publication by the artists at Creative Growth
, an art center in Oakland for artists with disabilities. Since 2016, Creative Growth Magazine has presented the work of these visionaries, among advice columns, recipes, short stories, horoscopes, fashion spreads, and Q&As about anything from love among artists to the legend of Bigfoot. We ask: how can a small, volunteer-driven magazine represent creatives whose voices are rarely seen in mainstream publications? And, what does it mean for so-called “outsider artists” to see their work in a glossy, full-color magazine sold at shops and museums nationwide?

Craft & Virtual Reality: Where Design Meets Technology
Join Umber Magazine
and the Heath Newsstand for a conversation exploring Virtual Reality: its relationship to craft, design, and communication. To start, we’re dusting off an article from Umber’s Tactile Relationship Issue, illuminating the connection between designed reality and physical reality — how it impacts identity, and the manifestation of self — where it adds value and where its technology falls short.
Anthropologist and VR-expert, Monika Jo joins Mike Nicholls, Umber’s Founder, in conversation with Heath’s Experience Design Manager, as we demystify Virtual Reality and consider its current and future applications in the realm of physical experience — all this with a design and manufacturing slant, of course. We'll have VR headsets for you to try out, too.
