Mask-Making Mardi Gras Madness

mardi gras maskZoë Thrasher ’16 writes in with an opportunity for artsy gluttony:

Mardi Gras is a cool occasion to meet some swell and happening people and collectively make masks (zomg – GLITTER) and enjoy the finer things in life, like food. Stop by Alpha Delt this Tuesday at 7-9 and make a neat mask (to show off your ultra artsy side), eat some donuts and chips and soda (because gluttony is a fun combo with mask-making), and revel in the fun atmosphere of a house full of other artsyn gluttons. Happy Mardi Gras! And we hope to see you there! ^_^

Date: Tuesday, February 9
Time: 7-9PM
Place: Alpha Delt

Wesleyan Doula Project Info Sessions

doulaproject2Hannah Sokoloff-Rubin, Jesalyn Ortiz, and Alexandra Stovicek write in:

Passionate about reproductive health? Interested in working as a patient advocate in local abortion clinics? Want to be involved in the only college-based doula project in the country?

Apply to be trained as an abortion doula with the Wesleyan Doula Project!

For security reasons, people who get abortions aren’t allowed to bring anyone with them for support during or after their procedures.  Our project trains Wes students to offer that missing support – as doulas, we volunteer weekly at local abortion clinics to provide patients with emotional and physical support and advocacy during their procedures and recovery.

We will be holding our annual training on April 2-3! If you are interested in applying, you must attend ONE of our two info sessions and complete an application and interview process.  More details (and snacks!) at the info sessions.

INFO SESSION 1: Monday, February 8 from 7-8 PM in 41 Wyllys Room 113

INFO SESSION 2: Wednesday, February 10 from 7-8 in PAC 104

Light of the East—The Beauty of Movement in Silence

PSA from the College of East Asian Studies:

Prominent Korean digital artists Youngho Kim and Jisong Lee examine
the “beauty of movement in silence” through photography and video in
their first exhibition outside Korea. Both artists build on their long
careers in fashion and commercial work to create works that examine
the core principals hiding behind what we see, and provide an opening
to re-explore, in a contemporary light, the topic of whether the world
that we are living in is a dream.

Date: Wednesday, February 3rd – Sunday, May 22nd
Time: 12:00 PM- 4:00 PM
Place: College of East Asian Studies Gallery
