Art experience is neither required nor expected.
Climate Justice Solutions in an Era of DeregulationFranklin Patterson Hall, West Lecture Hall
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.Catherine Craig 08F (moderator), carbon neutral coordinator, EtsyMelissa Hoffer 84F, chief of the Energy and Environment Bureau in the Massachusetts Attorney General’s Office

We Are Made of Stories: An Interactive WorkshopEmily Dickinson Hall, Main Stage Theatre
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.

Embodied Leadership: Skills to Support Emotionally Connected RelationshipsMusic and Dance Building, Recital Hall

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.
