Two Very Different, Very Interesting Events at Green Street this Weekend
Saucy Stories at Green Street This Saturday, February 7
A one-day course, taught by Jamie Cat Callan (pictured) at Wesleyan’s Green Street Arts Center, is taking place for beginning as well as advanced writers who want to explore a variety of techniques for writing erotic fiction. Participants engage in a series of writing exercises that open up sensory and emotional awareness to create prose that is borne from a deeper place within them. Saucy Stories takes place at the Green Street Arts Center on Saturday, February 7 from 1–4pm.
Sonia Mañjon—Community Arts in the Academy: An Emerging Field in Liberal Arts Education
This talk will be an exploration of how liberal arts institutions (i.e. Wesleyan) are integrating community engagement practices with art applications (i.e. Green Street Arts Center) to produce both curricular and co-curricular content. Dr. Sonia BasSheva Mañjon developed the first BFA program in Community Arts at California College of the Arts and has worked with both art and liberal art institutions and national organizations to research, document, and speak about the power of art in engaging community collaborations and social justice practices. Dr. Mañjon speaks at the Green Street Arts Center’s Sunday Salon on Sunday, February 8 at 2pm.
