The Rosehip Medic Collective and the Faultline Ensemble are collaborating to produce a theatrical production about mutual aid, community medical needs, and collective resilience in the aftermath of a major earthquake on the Cascadia Subduction Zone. Performance dates are in November, the weekends of the 14th and the 21st. Save the dates!
To create a plausible post-quake relief center setting, we need a LOT of supplies. Once we collect this stuff, and put on the show, we’re very much looking forward to passing on whatever is usable to Right 2 Dream Too and other folks in our community.
[The kinds of supplies we need for the acute crisis of an 9.0 earthquake are the same supplies that folks need to survive the chronic crisis of systematic resource deprivation and houselessness.]
**Some items are specified new & unused.
**Everything else we would prefer clean and usable,
[BUT we will gladly accept old WASHED and beat up sleeping bags, abandoned raincoats, etc.]
PLEASE SHARE with your contacts; we could absolutely use pallets of canned food, random odds and ends. (You’ve seen what this looks like at Occupy Portland, Sandy, etc.) Join our facebook event page and email us for further updates
CONTACT: firstname.lastname@example.org, email the Rosehips, or leave a message at 503-512-0480 to submit donations. Thanks so much!
