Table Talk with Friends

September 23, 2020
Multicultural Engagement and Fine Arts will collaborate for Friends University’s first Allyship event, Wednesday, Sept. 23 at 3 p.m.

Allyship is an active practice in emphasizing social justice, diversity, inclusion and human rights by members of an ingroup. The Fine Arts Department will spotlight this crucial topic with their event titled Table Talk with Friends: Processing and Change. The focus of the first Table Talk event will be student advocacy.

The event will include a panel discussion and Q&A with Friends University’s Interim Director of Visual Arts, Jenny Venn and Assistant Professor of Music Theatre & Dance, Sheldon Mba. Crystal Aluko, director of multicultural engagement, will be the moderator.

“As Friends University begins to move towards actively making an inclusive environment, we now need to discuss how power dynamics can quell a student\\'s voice and blind a professor\\'s vision,\" said Mba.

Table Talk with Friends will take place in-person in Sebits Auditorium and will be livestreamed on the Friends University Fine Arts Facebook page and the Fine Arts YouTube page. Please read the Covid policies if you will be attending in-person.
