"1st Thursdays | 6-9 p.m.
Riverside Artswalk First Thursdays was launched in 2002 and is a yearly event that takes place every first Thursday of each month to celebrate the diversity of arts and culture in the Inland Empire. The founders of this community event are two well-known local artists: Cosme Cordova, director of Division 9 Gallery and Mark Schooley, director of Riverside Community Arts Association. Currently there are over 20 venues including art galleries, studios, museums and the library which participate each month. Riverside Artswalk is hosted by the Riverside Arts Council and sponsored by the City of Riverside and Riverside Downtown Partnership."
Come join the best Ask An Atheist team in SCA with education and outreach as we meet with the greater community and answer questions from the religious about atheism and Humanism and invite unaffiliated fellow skeptics to join in our community. You DO NOT have to answer or debate anyone at all but you will enjoy the community engagement. It's fun to hang out.
Bring your lawn chair if you'd like to sit and bring some water and some cash to find food from one of the other vendors. This market is still very small but growing compared to the Redlands Market Night but Redlands is still on hiatus. Magnolia Center Marketplace is located adjacent to Riverside Place around the post office.
For four decades the human immunodeficiency virus has left its mark on humanity. From medicine, to culture, politics, and perspectives from the human condition itself, HIV deserves our attention.
This year for World AIDS Day (12/1), we will be exploring the history of the virus, the state of medical research and response, the socio-cultural aspects of public awareness and stigma and talk to a panel including a researcher who is tirelessly working to end the pandemic.
Our guest is Mati Kedzior. Mati is a scientist (microbiologist) from Poland who has been a postdoctoral associate in the US since 2017 in different universities, working on rare congenital disorders, origins of life, and pathogenic microbes with particular emphasis on sexually transmitted pathogens. Currently employed at a non-profit organization named International AIDS Vaccine Initiative to work on optimized HIV antibodies to be used as preventive and therapeutic products.
This event is brought to you at 1pm PST by Black Non Believers and Humanist Association of San Diego.
Come meet your old and new friends and experience our interesting downtown Riverside at the newish pub, The Brickwood, a charming place that is also conducive to audible conversation. They serve wine and a million beers and allow us to bring in pizza so we’re getting Bricks and Birch Pizza, regular and vegetarian. My recent favorite is brie and apple pizza. Please bring $10 cash to pitch in for the pie and a card for your own drinks. Pizza is arriving around 6:30.
We encourage you to bring your friends (even the delusional religious ones cuz we luv them, too), and significant others. Expect to shuffle your seating on cue several times so you get to visit with more folks. Remember to leave a tip since we're taking up a prime spot there for 3 hours offset only by what we order to drink.
The Brickwood is in the Mission Inn mall area. Find Simple Simon’s, on the same side as Brickwood across the mall from the Mission and come three doors up towards Mission Inn Avenue and you'll see it. The sign is small, easy to miss. There is street or parking in lots nearby. Google Parkopedia for free spaces before you leave. We’ll be there at 5 pm but come anytime you can. Look for us at the long table. Please be vaccinated ONLY. I've had all three and a flu shot.
