Interested in learning more about the space, who’s working there, and what’s being built? Join us this Thursday—First Thursday—at 5:30 for beverages and whatnot. Meet the folks who are calling the office space home. See what’s planned for the immediate future.

Glass Plate Game and First Thursday Open House
Collective Agency Downtown

The Glass Plate Game, inspired by Hermann Hesse's Glass Bead Game, is essentially a conversation in the trappings of a board game. Hesse's game us alluded to as a The idea is to spark creative and interesting dialog as the players explore connections between ideas against a dynamic mosaic map. There are no winners or losers. There is no order of play. Conversation continues throughout, and anyone can make a move at any time. The end result is an artifact of the conversation. The "game board" makes it easy to follow the twists and turns of the conversation.

Co-creator Dunbar Aitkens will be visiting to help lead the session. We will begin with an introduction to the game followed by a period of idea card making to especially bring concepts from players' own projects and interests into the card deck, then launch right into playing. Stay for the 3rd hour, and we'll build Glass Plate Game sets for everyone who'd like one to take with them. The sets contain "idea cards" for composing the mosaic and wooden cubes and colored transparencies for tracking the thread of thought.

Come for fun, friends, and stimulating conversation.

Also, "Collective Agency" will be open continuously to the public, from 9am-9pm on September 1st. Regular hours are 9am-5pm, Mon-Fri.

CENTRL Office First Thursday with Base Camp Brewing

Join us for First Thursday at CENTRL Office! Base Camp Brewing Company will be serving beer and we will have ice cream from Ruby Jewel and small bites available all night!

Artist Chris Kelleher will be displaying his beautiful artwork and you will also have the option of participating in a Pop & Paint, LLC. Art Class! We will be painting the iconic Portland, Oregon sign while we sip some brews from Base Camp!

More about Chris Kelleher: Creating mostly through improvisation, I set out to build a relationship between marks focusing on movement, form and light. Though predominately abstract, the landscape of the Pacific Northwest has had a profound influence on my work. Whether I am painting at a live music performance or I am in my studio, music is an important part of the process. I allow music to directly translate into my work by accessing its poetry, melody, and above all else, rhythm. I try to allow each piece to flow from the brush with the same dynamic tendencies as water itself. I consider my work to be both spiritual and playful.
