Curator’s Tour of the Exhibition “A Future for Memory”

Curator’s Tour of the Exhibition “A Future for Memory”

Wednesday, April 7, 2021 - 4:00pm to 5:00pm

This session presents a curator’s tour of the exhibition “A Future for Memory: Art
And Life After The Great East Japan Earthquake of March 11, 2011” currently on display at the Museum of Anthropology (MOA) at the University of British Columbia.  The great earthquake off the coast of Japan on March 11, 2011 was the most powerful earthquake ever record in Japan, caused tsunami waves that killed over 15,000 people and caused a nuclear meltdown in the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant.  This exhibition “addresses how we deal with memory when our physical surroundings are drastically altered. It focuses on the changing physical and psychological landscapes in the aftermath of 3.11 and shows that regional disasters have global relevance. Events such as 3.11 force us to rethink our ways of life in relation to nature. Even in the midst of disasters, people have the desire to create and to express themselves—as does nature.”
Dr. Nakamura will join us to introduce the exhibition and to answer questions after her video tour.  Dr. Nakamura is a sociocultural anthropologist who specializes in the anthropology of art and museum studies.  She is MOA’s Curator of Asia and an Associate member of the Departments of Anthropology and Asian Studies.
Dr. Fuyubi Nakamura, University of British Columbia

Connecting A Global Archives to CCP Students

Connecting A Global Archives to CCP Students

Thursday, April 8, 2021 - 12:00pm to 1:00pm

This session showcases “Building Knowledge and Breaking Barriers” (BKBB) an archives-based learning project that for two years has brought educators and students from Community College of Philadelphia together with the Presbyterian Historical Society (PHS), a Philadelphia archive with over 500 years of history in its collections. BKBB uses archival items and expertise to bolster the research and critical-thinking skills of CCP students. The project also confronts barriers to access, learning, and professional opportunities that too often keep institutions like PHS a resource for the privileged few instead of a place of welcome for the broader Philadelphia community.  
 
This session will also introduce a BKBB student exhibit that will launch in early April. Forged in the crucible of a global pandemic and a national racial reckoning, the exhibit will show CCP students interpreting history that means the most to them, with topics including the Black church, abolition and revolution, LGBTQIA+ inclusion, public art in Philadelphia, and white Christian attitudes toward Asians and Asian Americans.

Applying for and obtaining financial aid for college can be a complex and sometimes grueling process. Many times, students grow discouraged and organized efforts to transform the current system oftentimes do not occur. Join us for a panel discussion to learn more about government advocacy and ways you can get involved to unite your power and transform the financial aid process to better fit the needs of today's students.  Panelists will speak about their professional roles and answer follow-up questions detailing how students can get involved in advocacy around federal student aid.

Paving The Path Forward – Discussion Workshop

Paving The Path Forward – Discussion Workshop

Wednesday, April 21, 2021 - 1:00pm to 2:30pm

This event is for students and is intended to help create a safe space for them to heal, grow and to equip them tools and resources to help mitigate the effects that trauma has on them. Unresolved trauma could definitely impede academic progress, and thus lead to a loss in talent that could otherwise be developed. 

As the third and final workshop in a series designed to Create a Safe Space for Healing Trauma and Cognitive Recovery, students are invited to join the discussion on moving forward from past traumas to develop a path forward. Event may feature guests (depending on availability), but either way should be a productive and safe space to learn, heal and grow. 

 
Any questions can be directed to jgriggs@ccp.edu
