A day at THE WORKS that welcomes the whole family, tiny tba is a festival within a festival, sampling dance, music, film and visual art, and refusing to draw the line between kid and adult. Hosted by DJs Belinda Miller and Hova Najarian of Greasy Kid Stuff, the event features guest appearances by TBA Festival artists, hands-on activities, selections from the NW Film Center’s Young People’s Film and Video Festival and special tours of the visual arts installations at WHS. The event will be held in the former WHS library, transformed into an all-ages lounge. Healthy snacks and drinks available for purchase.
Greasy Kid Stuff began in 1995 on freeform radio legend WFMU and relocated to Portland in 2004. Hailed as “the best kid’s radio program of all time” by Alternadad Neal Pollack, the show strikes a cord with punk-inspired parents looking for alternatives to mass-market kiddie culture. greasykidstuff.vox.com
The Young People’s Film & Video Festival is an annual opportunity for young Northwest film and video makers in grades K-12 living in Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, Utah, and Washington to have their work juried by professional media artists and presented to the public. The Festival encourages young people to use film and video to creatively express personal concerns, explore important social issues, and share engaging stories about the world today as they see it. www.nwfilm.org/festivals/youngfestival
