Connie Hildreth 10F will teach you the basics of digital sculpting using Sculptris, a free program by the makers of zBrush. Attendees will learn to use Sculptris's very simple interface and work on the lab computers to make something of their own.

Art experience is neither required nor expected.

Climate Justice Solutions in an Era of Deregulation
Franklin Patterson Hall, West Lecture Hall
9:30–10:30 a.m.
What can be done to address climate change in the U.S. when the EPA is under attack? What role will the courts play in climate change? How can educational efforts yield an informed public who can hold our leaders accountable for injustices? Join us for a panel discussion of climate justice solutions in an era of environmental deregulation. President Trump has a mission to dismantle the EPA, and has persistently targeted minority groups with his policies. In this panel, we will attempt to answer what can be done to protect indigenous peoples, people of color, and poor communities who are disproportionately impacted by climate change.

We Are Made of Stories: An Interactive Workshop
Emily Dickinson Hall, Main Stage Theatre
10:45 a.m.–Noon
What are different ways of exploring community, identity, and the self through the arts? As we come back together as a Hampshire community at Div IV, participate in an interactive workshop that helps us creatively tell our stories and listen to others across difference. We will bring to life the unique narratives we each carry through the writing of poetry, use of our bodies in movement, and telling of stories with equal time given to each speaker.

Come hear from biocultural anthropologist, who explores the physical body and cultural constructions of parturition. Meet a full-spectrum doula to understand about supportive care.

Embodied Leadership: Skills to Support Emotionally Connected Relationships
Music and Dance Building, Recital Hall
1:00–2:15 p.m.
Did you know that 90% of our communication is nonverbal? The Embodied Leadership Project offers experiential education in nonverbal communication. Join Jamila Jackson 14F in a playful and non-threatening atmosphere as you explore the concept of Embodied Leadership. We invite people to learn skills, exercises, body language, and theory that support the development of emotionally connected relationships. These skills allow individuals to build meaningful connections across racial and cultural difference, and support people to be innovative, creative thinkers, and empowered leaders. The skills gained from this workshop are designed to be easily integrated into learning, teaching, community, and business environments.
