All Day Cast: New Work by Pat Falco (Multi-Day Event)
Click here to RSVP

Artist Talk and Reception: Thursday, February 2, 5:00 P.M.
Exhibit on View: February 2–March 30
Hollister Gallery
 
A keen observer of the world around him, Pat Falco uses a street art graphic drawing style and hand-printed text to reflect with honesty and wit on both social and personal issues. He chooses mis-tinted paints and found objects for his art surfaces, because, as he says, “I’d like not to make more waste than is already here.” Consumer culture, interpersonal relationships, the art world, our current political climate, heartbreak, gentrification, socioeconomic stratification, and fear of failure are a just a few of the themes where he mines incongruities for humor and pathos.

Tai Chi is a gentle exercise for body and mind.  With its roots in Chinese martial arts and traditional Chinese medicine, Tai Chi uses slow and gentle movements to build your balance, strength, flexibility and focus.  No matter your age or physical condition, you can practice Tai Chi.  Scientific studies support the effectiveness of Tai Chi in improving the lives of people with chronic conditions, such as arthritis, diabetes, and osteoporosis.  Most of all, Tai Chi is relaxing and fun.  So come as you are, in comfortable clothes, with flat-soled shoes.  You will learn the basic principles of Tai Chi as well as exercises and a short form you will be able to practice on your own.  The course will be taught by faculty member Carolyn Hotchkiss, who has studied Yang and Sun style Tai Chi for five years, and is certified to teach Tai Chi for Arthritis.

7:00 PM - 9:30 PM Mustang (2015)
Click here to RSVP

Directed by Deniz Gamze Ergüven, 2015

Nominated for an Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film, Mustang takes place in a village in northern Turkey where the innocent flirtations of five young sisters set off a series of dire consequences. The girls are pulled from school, and the family home is turned into a sort of prison where the sisters are trained to become dutiful and submissive wives. But as this deeply moving story unfolds, their passionate spirits cannot be confined, and one by one, they find ways to break free of their constraints.

The year was 1866, less than a year after President Lincoln was assassinated by John Wilkes Booth. His brother Edwin Booth, one of the greatest Shakespearean actors of the nineteenth century, decided to perform Hamlet on Broadway, a role he had performed in the past to great acclaim. A huge crowd turned up for the performance — but it wasn't clear whether they were there to see the actor perform, or to exact their revenge.  Jacob Fishel, an actor with a wide-ranging career on television and on and off Broadway, takes on the role of Booth.  Presented by Commonwealth Shakespeare Company

Entrepreneurship is a powerful tool in solving the world’s most complex problems.

In the fight against human trafficking, innovative entrepreneurs are launching dynamic organizations, solutions, and advancements to tackle this egregious human rights abuse. These new leaders and stakeholders in the anti- human trafficking movement are revolutionizing the field at ages from primary school to adult and crafting systemic change. Entrepreneurship also plays a key role in providing economic stability for those to never be at risk for human trafficking. Entrepreneurs may also be survivors of this horrendous crime and now on the forefront of helping those still suffering or those vulnerable to new and further exploitation. Technology and technological applications are playing a role in some of these ventures, and talented entrepreneurs are shaping the newest wave of innovations. The content for this webinar will answer the following: how did these entrepreneurs get started, and what inspires them? What have been their successes and also their challenges? How has technology played a role in their ventures? What do these entrepreneurs see for the future of the anti-human trafficking movement, and what advice would they give to those who see themselves as emerging entrepreneurs? This is the fourth webinar in the series, "The Private Sector Countering Human Trafficking: New Technologies, Innovation and Entrepreneurship Tackling Human Trafficking." This is the third webinar series on emerging issues surrounding human trafficking, illicit trade and the private sector presented by The Global Initiative against Transnational Organized Crime and Babson College’s Initiative on Human Trafficking and Modern Slavery.

The year was 1866, less than a year after President Lincoln was assassinated by John Wilkes Booth. His brother Edwin Booth, one of the greatest Shakespearean actors of the nineteenth century, decided to perform Hamlet on Broadway, a role he had performed in the past to great acclaim. A huge crowd turned up for the performance — but it wasn't clear whether they were there to see the actor perform, or to exact their revenge.  Jacob Fishel, an actor with a wide-ranging career on television and on and off Broadway, takes on the role of Booth.  Presented by Commonwealth Shakespeare Company

7:00 PM - 9:30 PM Shakespeare and Leadership: Richard II
Click here to RSVP

Although the struggle for England's throne was never simple, the kingdom lasted for over a millennium before the sovereignty passed outside a direct familial line. But when an inept ruler — indecisive, frivolous and vain — angered the established nobility, one man interceded in the transition of power and sparked a civil war that would last 86 years.
 
Shakespeare & Leadership features a staged reading of excerpts from the play, performed by leaders from the business community alongside professional actors. The reading is followed by a panel discussion in which the participants address leadership questions and themes raised in the text.

This Film Is Not Yet Rated - Contains Nudity, Language 

 

Watch the official trailer - https://bodyimagemovement.com/embrace/about-the-film/

When Australian woman Taryn Brumfitt posted an unconventional before-and-after photo (celebrating body diversity) on Facebook in 2013 it was shared worldwide and seen by more than 100 million people.

 

The overwhelming response inspired Taryn to learn more about the global issue of body loathing. She launched a Kickstarter campaign in 2014 to produce a documentary film. Her campaign was supported by nearly 9,000 Kickstarter donors who pledged more than $330,000. Babson College's Center for Women's Entrepreneurial Leadership (CWEL) was proudly one of the first corporate-level sponsors of the project.

 

Released in 2016, the documentary "Embrace" follows Taryn’s crusade as she traverses the globe talking to experts, women in the street and well-known personalities about the alarming rates of body image issues that are seen in people of all body types. In her effervescent style, Taryn explores the factors contributing to this problem and seeks to find solutions.

 

Embrace had its world premiere at the 2016 Sydney Film Festival, where it was chosen as one of the festival directors’ top 5 picks. It was released in the US in September, 2016.

 

"Our body is not an ornament but a vehicle, says Taryn Brumffit, whose life-endorsing documentary is a surprisingly moving experience. Surprising because the film canvasses issues far beyond the superficial stories about Photoshop, skinny supermodels and unattainable beauty. In her debut film, Bruffit, who garnered attention with arresting before and after photographs of herself posted on social media, has created an inspiring work in which the different ideals of beauty are explored."

Sachiko Akiyama’s work brings together artistic influences of Brancusi, Egyptian funerary sculptures, medieval Christian woodcarvings, and contemporary sculptors with the artist’s personal experiences and Japanese heritage, notably Japanese fairy tales.  Her carvings convey a sense of centeredness and direct connections to nature that opens up the door to creation mythologies and other mystical possibilities. The figures’ relationships to flora, fauna, and the elements speak metaphorically to the ways we find meaning in our lives and meet the challenges of our surroundings.
