The 3rd annual Engage! Community Day of Education is a day-long learning opportunity for all Hampshire community members. This year we are acknowledging the difficulty and challenges of Spring 2019 while attending to the shifts happening on campus now.
Engage: Hampshire on the Mend will be on Thursday, October 24 in Franklin Patterson Hall. It will encourage participants to consider:
Artist and activist Mary Pottenger will be in residence on campus the week of October 21-24 facilitating story circles, interviewing community members, and creating a workshop/performance that will be shared at Engage! NEX(US): Hampshire Voices will bring together Hampshire College students, staff, administrators, faculty, alumni, and board of trustee members to share stories, listen to one another, make space for differences and find common ground. The week-long residency will include story circles, interviews, workshops and will culminate with a workshop/performance at Engage! Community Day of Education on Thursday, October 24, at 2 p.m. with refreshments afterwards. Community members do not have to perform to participate in the process, and there will be multiple ways to participate. One way in which Marty is engaging with our community is via a Residency Survey.
It's crucial that our many voices are represented, heard, and engaged. There is a poster of overall events schedule for the day. Classes are canceled on Thursday, October 24, and we encourage departments to work with staff so that everyone can participate. Let's ENGAGE!
Engage! was made possible by a generous donation and by support from the following offices and programs: Institutional Diversity and Inclusion; Ethics and the Common Good Program; Culture, Brain, and Development Program; The President's Office; and Student Life.
