From Your Director

Dear Friends,
It has been a season of change for OASIS Albuquerque! We are extremely pleased with our new location and many thanks go to...



Join our friendly corps of volunteers

Volunteers are the heart and soul of our program. Share your skills and talents, support successful aging and meet new friends. In addition to tutoring children who are learning to read, volunteers represent OASIS at community events and help run the center on a daily basis. Find out more about our volunteer opportunities.

A sample of our upcoming programs

On October 1, take a trip with OASIS to Santa Fe which includes guided tours of two museums. On Santa Fe Art Excursion: Judy Chicago & Donald Woodman (class #1), we will visit the NM Museum of Art and the NM History Museum and go on curator-guided tours of three art exhibits: Local Color: Judy Chicago in New Mexico 1984-2014; Donald Woodman: Transformed by New Mexico; and Poetics of Light: Pinhole Photography.
Many people struggle with low savings and high debt and would like to get a better handle on money issues. Financial Fundamentals (class #9), taught by Financial Planner Mike Cosgrove, will help you think differently about money by organizing your spending. You will also receive tips to increase your emergency savings, reduce spending, and taking advantage of community programs. Wednesday, October 1, from 10:30am-12pm at OASIS
Discover Artist Trading Cards: Art Workshop (class #2) is taught by Micaela Seidel, a well-known artist and educator in our community. She will teach you the history of and how to make artist trading cards, miniature works of art which have become part of an international person-to-person exchange of images and mixed media techniques! Micaela always brings a treasure chest full of supplies and materials for you to create your works of art. No experience necessary. Wednesday, October 1, from 1-3pm at OASIS
One of our upcoming Focus on Humanities classes is Whose Holocaust? (class #22), taught by Dr. Noel Pugach, professor emeritus of history at UNM. In this class, we will discuss the historiography of the Holocaust, raising crucial questions about how we craft our image of the past, and how history and memory are linked to national and religious identity. 
Thursdays, October 2 & 9 (2 sessions), 10:30am-12pm at OASIS 
David Metzler offers thought-provoking talks on math topics for the non-math mind. This Friday, join him for Dealing With Uncertainty: The Fall & Rise of Bayesian Statistics (class #86), where he will discuss discuss how the so-called Bayesian approach to statistics fell out of favor for decades, but has recently seen a triumphant revival, in everything from speech recognition algorithms to Nate Silver's political predictions.
Friday, October 3, 10:30am-12pm at OASIS
