An evening of readings called ‘Future Jetsam #3’ is on at Portland’s hq Objective on August 29.
Announced with a text and opening with the tagline “……..caught in a circle of interconnected slimes…….”, the event is presented by Lauren Lollie Nelson and James Curry-Castillo, and features manuel arturo abreu, Hannah Mizar, Demian Dinéyazhi’, Eileen Chavez and Curry-Castillo. A floating event, it is the third in the series Future Jetsam which brings together various writers in different locations. It has previously been held in intimate spaces such as Nelson’s home or a cafe. This event in particular will host performances by poets and comics.
The press release describes the evening as “a node between lives. Possibly a collapsing, a dissolution to nothingness, or—maybe it’s a transition, a dissolution to something else.” Both Nelson and Curry-Castillo are artists’ and writers’ who live in Portland, Oregon.
