Some words from  Sophia “Sophia Jennings” Jennings ’16:

Method Magazine and SWERVED are teaming up with Columbia’s PostcryptArt Gallery for a Wes/CU show in NYC on October 24th. Over the course of a month, we invite you to start working on anything. It can be a story, a poem, a painting, a drawing, a photo, a beat, anything.

On September 29th, we’ll send it to NYC, where a group of Columbia artists will keep working on it. Then they’ll send it back to us by October 7th. You’ll take what they’ve done and add to it more before we send it back on October 15th. The Columbia artists will add their finishing touches and by October 24, the piece will be part of an opening at Postcrypt Gallery beneath St. Paul’s Cathedral in Morningside Heights.

If you’re interested in getting involved email msjennings[at]wesleyan[dot]edu by Wednesday, September 24th.

Film Series: Obvious Child

2014. USA. Dir: Gillian Robespierre. With Jenny Slate, Gaby Hoffmann. 84 min.

 

In this humbly subversive rom-com, a twenty-something comedian gets more than she bargained for when her drunken one-night stand gets her pregnant – just in time for Valentine’s Day. Slate gives a stellar turn as a young woman adrift in her newfound adulthood, while the film balances plenty of laughs with an earnest and refreshingly honest handling of the unwanted pregnancy.

A very cool event from the Center for the Arts:

Afternoon workshops and evening performances by international Muslim women in hip hop, including London’s spoken-word duo Poetic Pilgrimage, the U.S. debut of Montreal-based Algerian singer-songwriter and rapper Meryem Saci as a solo artist, and the New England debut of Washington, D.C.-based and Grammy Award-nominated singer-songwriter, poet, and emcee Maimouna Youssef a.k.a. Mumu Fresh as a solo artist. Using hip hop as a platform to explore issues of social importance—faith, peace, unity, social justice—educate individuals, and inspire change, the evening concert will also feature the Nomadic Wax Collective, a live backing band that will include bass, drums, keys, guitar, and a DJ. This event is part of Muslim Women’s Voices at Wesleyan.

  • Three workshops (between 11am and 5pm): World Music Hall, located at 40 Wyllys Avenue on the Wesleyan University campus in Middletown, Connecticut.
  • Concert(9pm): Fayerweather Beckham Hall, located at 55 Wyllys Avenue on the Wesleyan University campus in Middletown, Connecticut.
