    Join Recovery Santa Fe in remembering those our community lost in the last year.

  • Fall Activities at the Santa Fe Ski Basin – Sat. & Sun. 11 am – 3 pm, chairlift rides, disc golf, live music, a beer garden and a sports shop sale, plus discounts on advance lift tickets (because this winter can’t possibly be worse than last, right?).
  • Tickets on Sale Now for Santa Fe Farmers’ Market Fall Fiesta. By attending you help strengthen northern New Mexico agriculture, preserve small farms, build community around locally produced food, combat food insecurity by making healthy food available to everyone in our community, and maintain their permanent home for the Santa Fe Farmers’ Market in the Santa Fe Railyard.

     

  • Volunteers needed for STEM Santa Fe’s Expanding your Horizons conference on Saturday October 13, 2018 at Santa Fe Community College. We are expecting 200 girls, in 5th-8th grade, from Santa Fe and Northern NM schools to participate. For more details and to sign up click here or contact: Volunteer@stemsantafe.org if you have any questions. They also need donations of swag for the conference bags and/or inkind donations of STEM kits as door prizes. Any number of swag items is accepted. Contact: Lina.Germann@stemsantafe.org
  • A message from Katie Rountree:  “Each fall I try to put together a Giving Box which I keep in my car at all times. The box contains items that might be needed by the homeless or someone caught in a sudden rainstorm. I like to keep jackets and gloves in the box because as fall approaches often times the homeless are unprepared for the colder weather and I can just give them a jacket and some gloves on the spot. A box of dog treats are also in my Giving Box because many homeless people now have dogs as companions and what dog couldn’t use a little extra treat? I carry umbrellas because so many people don’t have one handy in a sudden rainstorm. If I see some caught in the rain I can just hand one to them. Other items are band aids, extra water and anything else I think someone could use. If you have any of these items that you no longer need, I would greatly appreciate a donation to the Giving Box. You may bring items to the next Women to Women Lunch on Sept. 12th or email me for pick up. Thank you! Katie

The 99th year of this Santa Fe tradition, the Fiesta Melodrama lampoons local politicians and issues all through the lens of an “Old West” style melodrama. A dastardly villain is determined to destroy the delicate decoupage of Santa Fe society and it is up to our hero to save the day. The Fiesta Melodrama is written every year by a team of courageously anonymous writers and is presented as part of the Fiesta de Santa Fe celebration.  Aug. 23–Sept. 9 at the Santa Fe Playhouse, 142 E De Vargas St, 505-988-4262

Every One is the result of a social collaboration conceived and created by the artist, Cannupa Hanska Luger, who invited communities from across the U.S. and Canada to create two-inch-diameter clay beads. Each of the resulting 4,000 handmade clay beads represents an indigenous individual who has been the victim of gender violence. Strung together, they form a portrait based on a photograph by First Nations photographer Kali Spitzer. Sat., Aug 11, exhibited at the Museum of International Folk Art, 706 Camino Lejo. An artist talk with Luger is Thurs., Aug. 16 at 2 pm, also at the Museum. It will remain on display through September 21, 2018.
