WHEN:This Thursday, March 17 at 7 PM.
WHAT: Lewis and Clark College's Organization for Peace and Politics is hosting the Beehive Collective and a showing of the radical art action education banners and work.
They are interested in collaborating with local groups that are focused on
global justice and international solidarity work, teachers interested
in digestible discussions that utilize cartoons as well as facts, and
student groups looking for inspired information ...
The featured presentation, available in spanish or english, is a portable-
mural "tour" comprised of a 16 foot wide banner version of the FTAA poster, or a 16 foot high banner version of the Plan Colombia poster that displays the issues in context of the "bigger picture." The banners are simultaneously accompanied by a six-foot tall fabric storybook, or projected "slide show" that has forty enlargements of scenes from the poster. Presenters take turns narrating through the mural's details and facts, helping to break down complex issues into smaller, more digestible chunks. All the while, continually explaining how they are connected to the "bigger picture."
The bees consider it vital to subvert the talking-head-at-the-podium
approach to political discussion. We break down the model of the "expert"
and the "audience" by relating information across language and learning
boundaries. It's a wicked healthy way to interact about MORE bad news.
Come see and hear about their amazing stuff up close and personal. It is worth coming up the hill for!
Free shuttle to campus leaves every hour from Pioneer Square.
WHERE: Thayer Student Lounge, Tempelton Student Union, Lewis and Clark College 0615 SW Palatine Hill Road
