Call for Artists and Creative Minds who are Interested in Social Justice

wesleyingpot

The one and only Francesca Moree ’14 wants to join forces with you:

Shoulder to Shoulder is a Wesleyan student group devoted to raising awareness about Homelessness in Middletown and the U.S. They’re excited to be hosting a variety of events throughout the month of April, making it Wesleyan’s Homelessness Awareness Month!

Shoulder to Shoulder is looking for students who are interested in helping to design a campus art installation that will go up during the month of April as a part of Homelessness Awareness Month. 

Some thoughts that have been thrown around include life-size cardboard portraits placed around campus, depicting actual Middletown residents experiencing homelessness, a photo display depicting the belongings Wesleyan students would choose to carry with them if they were homeless, and many more ideas!

The goal is to have a team working on this project so that no one individual has to shoulder the creative and constructive burden.  The installation/art piece would likely be displayed in the last two weeks of April.

Please contact Francesca Moree at fmoree[at]wesleyan[dot]edu if you’re interested in being involved with this exciting project!  No art experience required (I’m nowhere near a studio art major).  I’m just looking for individuals who are enthusiastic about helping Wes students engage with an important issue area in a novel way.

What: Contact Fran if interested!
Date: ASAP
Place: Over the emailwaves/all over campus

Everyone Is Gay

Yes, reader, that includes you. Coming at you from Marissa Castrigno ’15:

Everyone is Gay began as a humorous advice blog, but quickly became a multi-faceted safe haven for young people – particularly queer youth, their families and friends. In fall of 2011, Everyone is Gay began touring school campuses nationwide to raise awareness, answer questions, and provide simple yet powerful steps for bringing change and awareness to communities… while keeping everyone laughing.
