Author Reading | New Women Voices of African Fiction


Two authors of two ambitious debut novels. Novoyo Tshuma is a Zimbabwean writer living in Houston.

Namwali Serpell is a Zambian writer who teaches at Cal-Berkeley. The Old Drift is an intergenerational saga that combines history and romance and science fiction--revealing the cruelties and absurdities of colonialism, and the yearning to create and cross borders. A special opportunity to hear these exciting writers read from and discuss their work.

Performance | Passages | Pasajes: A Site-Specific Sonic Performance


Passages | Pasajes is a site-specific sonic performance that utilizes the lawn will occur the afternoon of Saturday, September 21, 2019, close to the autumnal equinox.  The work will manifest as 16 performers, mainly from the Uptown community, moving through the park space. The performers will expand and contract together as they pass melodies, passages of text, and the names of loved ones between each other through the park. The work will be in four 20-minute iterations with breaks in between. The audience will consist of both those coming directly to see the performance as well as users of the public park space.  The audience will be situated within the performers; they will be immersed in the performing elements as they sit or stand on the lawn in the park. The audience will be able to move about freely, to experience the work as they want, with the ability to come and go. The work will be presented in four distinct iterations to allow for the audience to continue to listen to the work or to allow new audience members to arrive as well as giving all performers the opportunity to be the leaders of a performance. The performers themselves will be helping in the creation of the work. Their personal histories will form parts of the materials utilized in the performance. This collaboration will foster a democratizing effect and ideally create a non-hierarchical structure to the work. The performance will be bilingual, in Spanish and English, to better display the polyglot nature of the community.

Discussion | Conservation Storytelling at National Geographic


Over the last ten years, wildlife storytelling at National Geographic has evolved from stories with a focus on behavior towards features that tackle issues about wildlife conservation and animal welfare. Beautiful wildlife images make people care about the natural world, but the stories that need to be told, the photographs that must be seen, are the ones that shine a light on our relationship with the natural world. Photographers Kate Brooks, Jennifer Hayes, and Kirsten Luce will be in conversation with Sarah Leen, Director of Photography at National Geographic. They share their experiences covering the poaching crisis, climate change, and wildlife tourism.
