Feminist, artist, musician, and citizen of humanity Ally Bernstein ’13 is continuing the discussion:

How can we foster an inclusive and exciting music and arts scene at Wesleyan?

Recently, I wrote an opinion piece about the lack of female performers in Spring Fling (since then, Girl#$wag has been added to the line-up; shout out Emma Daniels ’13). Members of the band Whore Paint (hailing from Providence, RI) will be on campus at 4:00 PM to discuss their experiences and answer questions. All are welcome to come share and discuss strategies for fostering an empowering scene at Wesleyan.

Date: Saturday, May 4
Time: 4:oo PM
Place: Room 113, 41 Wyllys

Read on for Ally’s rundown of Whore Paint’s members.

Carib Week: A Celebration of Caribbean Heritage and Culture

Submitted by Brittney McNab ’14:

“From Whence We Came”
There is a common ground that holds together the diverse populations of the region. The West Indies is home to various ancestral roots which all contribute to a very complex and heterogeneous space. People of the Caribbean are very connected to one another through their shared experience of relocation and post-colonial recovery. In our celebration we hope to highlight the multiplicity that helps to make the region what it is today.
Please join us in our celebration.
