Alexis Jimenez ’19 writes in:

Join WeSlam for our first-ever non-English performance poetry event. Our focus in doing this is to create a space that celebrates language in all its forms. This is NONCOMPETITIVE, and students do not need to have experience performing or writing poetry to participate. Students do not have to be native speakers of the language they choose to perform in; they can  be majors of that language, or have studied it independently.

The sign-up list IS OPEN NOW, and closes on March 2nd at 5:00PM. If you sign up to perform, you have the choice to provide an English translation for those who do not speak in non-English languages. The translation must be in by the 2nd, as well. Email all sign-ups and submissions to weslam.wesleyan[at]gmail[dot]com

If you have any questions, feel free to contact Lex: ajimenez[at]wesleyan[dot]edu or Teresa:  tnaval[at]wesleyan[dot]edu

Interest Meeting: Home Maintenance 101 with Physical Plant

lol cartoon flood womanDon’t know how to fix that shitty thing in your place of residence? Clara Pinsky ’16 has the answer:

Time to face it: real life is coming for you. Will you know what to do when your faucet starts leaking or your heaters stop working? Will you know how to patch a hole in the wall or find out why your lights won’t turn on?

Want to be prepared? Take a 6-week (.25 CREDIT) workshop with Physical Plant this spring to learn these practical life skills from the experts themselves.

Come to an interest meeting THIS WEEK:
Wed. 3/2 @ 4:15pm OR 7pm in Usdan 110
OR
Thurs. 3/3 @ 4:15pm in Exley 137

The workshop will meet weekly for six weeks (3/21-4/29). Questions? Email cpinsky[at]wesleyan[dot]edu.

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
