July marks, fittingly, the seventh month of the year, the official midway point of summer vacation (for those of us lucky enough to have it), and perhaps most importantly for The Seventh Wave, the return of our annual Rhinebeck Residency. As in previous years, we’ve invited four talented writers and artists to work and connect and converse together over our topic du jour, Issue 8: “Power And.” To celebrate their work, as well as that of our past contributors, we’re hosting our second annual sunset soirée on Sunday, July 22, the last day of the residency.
We are thrilled to invite you to join us for this special summer celebration, which will feature readings from our residents and other prominent writers from the NYC area, including members of the PANK Magazine community, as well as the co-founders of Say Yes Electric Collective. The afternoon will kick off around 3 p.m. and conclude just past 7 p.m., so that guests can make their way back into the city. There will be food and drinks provided by local sponsors, and live music to enjoy in the fresh upstate air.
Our soirée also serves as our big annual fundraiser, and a chance for us to share with our community what we’ve been up to over the past three (!!) years. We’re deeply indebted to those who have donated to our efforts so far, and are so looking forward to continuing to expand our reach and our programming efforts with your support. For those who haven’t had a chance to experience The Seventh Wave In Real Life (#TSWIRL), join us upstate this July for a taste of the grand outdoors and a whole smorgasbord of conversation and community. Tickets are $15 for students and $25 for general admission. Any questions, feel free to give us a shout at aW5mbyB8IHNldmVudGh3YXZlbWFnICEgY29t
