FallOut:

Stories, music, art, dance, and speeches by artists and activists who fall outside the norms of race, ability and/or gender

For further information or to reserve seats, contact Curtis Walker at 971.275.0794 or impetusarts@yahoo.com.



Attention:  We really want you to be able to attend and participate fully and we want all of our chronically ill community members to be able to also!  Because chemicals and scents make some of our performers and audience members extremely ill, people wearing scents and chemicals will be asked to leave. Please see the scent free policy below for details.



TW: Some performances include mention of abuse, self harm and institutionalization.  Don’t hesitate to contact Curtis for more information.

**Scent free policy


Because some of the artists and audience members have multiple chemical sensitivities (MSC) and get extremely ill from perfumes and chemicals, all audience members are required to be chemical and scent free for all events. For the safety of the artists, presenters, and audience members, those wearing chemicals and perfumes will be asked to leave and return scent free. FallOut organizers advise that scents and chemicals include but are not limited to perfume, deodorant, hairspray, gel, cigarette and pot smoke and much of mainstream  makeup, and that audience members should be prepared in advance to use only scent free shampoo, soap, make-up, and laundry detergent a full 24 hours before attending, as well as to come in clothing that has not been smoked in, including during show intermissions. FallOut organizers will provide even more information on how to be scent free on this website by a week before the performance including inexpensive or free home remedies/alternatives, and product suggestions. Those who wish to attend that are low income or need assistance purchasing products are encouraged to contact Curtis Walker at 971.275.0794.
