Hannah Wilton ’18 and Mira Guth ’18 want YOU:
LOAM magazine, an environmental arts magazine started by Kate Weiner ’15 and Nicole Stanton ’15, is back! We are looking for photographs, artwork, essays, poems, and thoughts that in some way explore our relationship with the earth. We’re hoping to get a jump on submissions for Fall 2016, so email your work to loam(at)wesleyan(dot)edu. We can’t wait to see what you send us!
Also, check out Kate and Nicole’s website to see all the beautiful work they’re doing as they expand LOAM to the wider world. We are so excited to collaborate and take their project forward at Wesleyan.
If you have any questions feel free to contact us! ( mguth(at)wesleyan(dot)edu and hwilton(at)wesleyan(dot)edu )
Abby Cunniff ’17 writes in:
Last year, people from the University Organizing Center made a Disorientation Guide of alternate Wesleyan histories and perspectives for incoming freshmen.
This summer, we will be creating the next edition of this guide! If you’re interested in joining our team or if you want to submit a piece of writing / art / something else, email Abby at acunniff(at)wesleyan(dot)edu before the end of May!
Deadline: Tuesday, May 31
Primal scream has become an undertaking of the masses and I’m thrilled. If you, like the enterprising Harim Jung ’16 and the fb hosts they crowdsourced, want to deal with your problems by screaming, come to the Olin steps at midnight tonight to partake in a time-honored Wes tradition. There will be a countdown.
Date: TONIGHT//when May 9th becomes May 10th
Place: Olin steps//the deepest recesses of your soul
For a lovely spring study break:
Spend an afternoon at the second annual “Feet to the Fire—Riverfront Encounter,” featuring world music bands, performance and visual art installations, a kids’ activity zone, and environmental education exhibits, as well as a craft fair and farmer’s market–all designed to bring you closer to the rich culture, history, and science of the Connecticut River. Koi flags, created by community members in workshops with Japanese artist Taichiro Takamatsu, will debut at this festival before traveling to the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
Date: Saturday, May 7
Place: Harbor Park, Middletown (on the banks of the river!)
