"In addition to our general fund, Open Meadows has six special funds that are targeted to specific groups and/or for specific activities. Each fund is described below. Please e-mail Open Meadows if you have questions about these funds.

The Jeanne Meurer Indigenous Women's Fund grants projects related to issues concerning indigenous women.
The Ellen Dougherty Activist Fund for Young Women grants to young women 19 and under who propose to develop and lead projects that are focused on activism and social change.

The Edie Windsor Fund for Old Lesbians supports projects developed by lesbians age 60 and older.

The India Fund supports projects in India developed and administered principally by women. The Fund focuses upon projects concerned with the rights of women, and their health, education, and economic development.

The PatsyLu Fund for Women's Music Projects considers women in music projects from women who are composers, music educators, musicologists, performers (or in performing groups). The mission of the Fund is to seek out women's music projects from women of ethnic, cultural, and racial diversity and especially the work of lesbians. Proposals should be accompanied by supporting materials, i.e. scores and/or recordings. Recordings solely for commercial distribution will not be considered.

The Susan F. Eastman Fund for Environmental Activism, seeks projects whose principle belief is in the right to a clean, healthy, and an environmentally sustainable future. The fund invites applications from organizations committed to environmental issues and who are making change through grassroots activism. We are looking for organizations that try to empower local women by organizing at the community level holding industry and government accountable for their actions against the environment.'

Top 10 Mistakes When Writing for Percussion

10. Indicating the wrong mallets for an instrument.
Brass mallets on vibes? Try a hammer on a violin!



9. Writing the glockenspiel part as heard.
You shouldn't have to climb a ladder of leger lines to read a glock part. Keep it in the staff.

8. When in doubt, adding more suspended cymbal.
This is a huge mistake made by arrangers. Yep, cymbals add automatic intensity to a piece, but so can a bass drum roll, a rousing hand drum part, exciting mallet licks, or a hundred other combinations. Well-written percussion parts stand out in the band and church repertoire.



7. Better means more complicated, right?
This is my main mistake. A percussion part can be simple enough for a middle school, but it is the ability to use the different tone colors of the percussion palette properly that indicates a maturity in writing, not that impossible part for the timpanist that has them playing timpani, gong, crash cymbals, and triangle in the span of two beats.

6. Never trust Band-in-a-Box to write the timpan…

Experimental Film - World Order #2 - Sabrina Pena Young

Experimental indie film World Order #2 originally created for the Turkey Cinema for Peace. A mix of images with the cinematic soundtrack of Sabrina Pena Young. (2003). The short film was filmed in an afternoon at my parent's home, with most special effects in-camera (ex. the "world' is really scrambled eggs with blue food coloring). Shot through glass decorative bulbs from my parent's patio. Student work.
