8:45 Discussion on Diversity and Practical Inclusivity

Led by Dr. Dawn Bennett-Alexander, Associate Professor of Employment Law & Legal Studies

Hyphenated American is back this year with the theme: Diversity Enriches! Artists of a variety of cultures and backgrounds are coming together for a night of spoken word, new compositions, visual art and dance. Come on out for this free show and enjoy the beauty of diversity. We’ll follow the show up with a safe discussion about the importance of diversity and what inclusivity looks like in our daily lives. Be on the lookout for news about the artists involved.

Last year’s Hyphenated American project, supported by an Idea Lab Mini-Grant, was a great success featuring visual art, poetry, new music compositions, and guest lecturers who came together for a show focused on Latinos in the U.S. This April, Hyphenated American is returning with a broader focus to amplify the voices of immigrants, refugees, and hyphenated Americans of every culture.

Supported in part by the UGA Hispanic Student Association and Ideas for Creative Exploration.

Performance: Hodgson Wind Ensemble
Tuesday, April 4 at 8 PM
UGA Performing Arts Center, Hodgson Concert Hall

The premier wind ensemble of the UGA Hugh Hodgson School of Music will perform works from ICE Mini-Grant recipient Cody Brookshire, ICE Advisory Board member Professor Peter Lane, Ron Nelson, Augusta Read Thomas, Mike Titlebaum and Michael Torke in a concert titled “All That Jazz.” Tickets are available at pac.uga.edu or the PAC box office for $12 or $6 with a UGA student ID.

Assistant professor of composition Peter Van Zandt Lane’s Beacons opens the second half of the program. “It is incredible,” says Cynthia Johnston Turner, Hodgson Wind Ensemble director. “There is no composer out there today, in my view, that explores color in more innovative ways than our own Peter Lane.”

Cody Brookshire, Richard Saney, Nick Saney, and Jake Reeves were awarded a 2015 ICE Mini-Grant to create technology allowing for the synchronized streaming of different audio tracks to web-enabled devices for immersive live music, called “SynkroTakt.” Last December, Lineage Percussion premiered Triple Helix, a new work for marimba trio utilizing SynkroTakt to stream click tracks of different tempi to each player. More recently, the Hodgson Wind Ensemble took Brookshire’s Honeycomb on a short tour, culminating in a performance at the national conference of the Concert Band Director’s National Association in Kansas City, Missouri. Future implementations of the technology by Brookshire include a performance at the Electrobrass II Conference in April, the New York City Electronic Music Festival in July, and composing a piece in residence at Avaloch Farms Music Institute in October. The SynkroTakt team is aiming for an end-of-July public release of the technology. Anyone interested in knowing more about the technology may visit www.SynkroTakt.com.

Unsolved: Math + Design Workshop (4/8)

ICE Workshop: Unsolved: Math + Design
Saturday, April 8 from 9:45 AM – 3:30 PM
Lamar Dodd Building Room S160

To register please contact
Free!

Unsolved: Math + Design is an interdisciplinary workshop for math, art, and design research, with the goal of making a product to be used in math outreach contexts. This workshop will engage the public in thinking about unsolved problems in mathematics, and participants will take part in problem solving to discover the intersection between math and design.

It will include three sessions: design, math, and synthesis. In the design session, participants will collaborate on drawings by using a conditional design method. In the math session, they will try to solve an unsolved math problem in a collaborative setting. In the synthesis session, they will design and build a final product by combining the two perspectives as they experience the process of shared problem solving.

Since 2002 her monthly column, “The Natural Explanation,” has highlighted high-caliber wildlife photographers and human influences on the environment. She has also worked in television production for public broadcasting and various other channels.With a degree in molecular and cell biology from Cornell University and an MFA in experimental and documentary arts from Duke University, Espelie taught courses in environmental issues and the documentary arts from 2012 to 2015 at Duke University’s Center for Documentary Studies, the Nicholas School of the Environment, the Department of Evolutionary Anthropology, and the Program in the Arts of the Moving Image.
