PCSE Seed Grant Pitch Competition!

Six teams of students are in the running for three $5,000 grants from the Patricelli Center for Social Entrepreneurship. They’ll go head-to-head in a public pitch competition this Friday and, based on the potential impact and feasibility of their projects and the caliber of their teams, a panel of alumni judges will determine which of the noble ventures to fund.

Read more about the finalists after the jump, and come cheer for your friends and favorite projects tomorrow! Pizza will be provided, and a webcast will be available here.

Time: 12:00 – 1:00 PM
Place: PAC 002 (and webcast)

Student Forum: Community Art in Theory and Practice

From Clara Pinsky ’16:

Interested in how art can change the world?

Community-based art is a collaboration between an “artist” and a community to create artwork that deals with the issues or experiences within that community. In this forum, we’re taking on the Wesleyan community using art (in any and all mediums!) as a force for social change!

Oh, and the class is worth 1 credit.
There will be a brief meeting on Thursday, Sept. 4, at 5PM in Allbritton 103 for anyone interested in taking this forum.

More info here. Questions? Contact Clara at cpinsky[at]wesleyan[dot]edu

Date: Thursday, September 4
Time: 5-5:30 P.M.
