Upcoming HE(ART)WORK Events
3/19 Sustainable Allyship, with Jihan McDonald (in the California Room)
This week's He(art)work is about sustainable allyship. Being an ally is about using the power you have to advocate for people who may not have power in that circumstance, or in the general society. We'll be doing experiential exercises that will help us connect beyond the social labels we all wear, define what being an ally means for us, and some creative tools to use when we need some help standing our ground so we can all walk on it in safety and peace.
3/26 HE(ART)WORK Planning Session (in the J.M. Long Lounge, Brennan Hall)
4/2 A World Without Prisons: Freedom Songs and Poems with Lebanese Songstress Naima Shalhoub (in the California Room)
Naima Shalhoub will facilitate a creative/thought-engaging activity on the theme of freedom songs, poetry and imagining a world without prisons. Using a poem about prisons by Palestinian poet Mahmoud Darwish, we will explore how we can activate our own minds to think beyond the confines of prisons--externally and internally--and how to use our creativity and imagination to resist limited thinking and heal and expand beyond the status quo.
4/9 Street Art with Yalie Kamara (in the California Room)
