New Hampshire filmmaker Dan Habib will be on campus to discuss his film, Intelligent Lives.

The perception of intelligence is a powerful force in the systematic segregation, maltreatment, and unfulfilled potential of hundreds of millions of individuals with disabilities in the US and worldwide. The documentary film project Intelligent Lives explores how the segregation of people with intellectual disabilities became the norm, why this segregation is slowly being dismantled, and how some people with intellectual disabilities are blazing a bold new path.

Atlantic Steps is a breathtaking and energetic new ensemble from Ireland’s Western Atlantic coastline. Combining an exceptional cast of Irish musicians and dancers along with a splash of song and humor, this is a production that is certain to lift your heart. The journey across the Atlantic during the waves of emigration from Ireland may have been tough for many, but it couldn't stop the fun and excitement of the rich culture these immigrants shared in their new home. The Atlantic Steps brings the spirit and enduring fun of the traditional Irish music, song, step dance, sean-nos (old-style) dance, and the spoken word. Join us for a fun-filled journey along Ireland’s Atlantic coastline exploring the tunes, dances and songs that draw so many to this mystical landscape.

The exhibition, A Walking Practice, is a series of prints and watercolors that have been inspired from the natural world. The artist, Lauren Sayers, says that these prints are a response to her “walking journeys” referencing specific regions, trails, water (ice), rock shapes, and roads. She records what she is drawn to as line, shape, and color.

Pressure from the etching press adds an element of surprise creating unique textures that resemble those found in the natural world.

Lauren Sayers is pursuing a bachelor of science degree in art education with a concentration in printmaking. These artworks are a sample taken from her portfolio.
