International Week: Unlocking Silent Histories

Join us in celebrating indigenous cultural life as seen through the eyes of Maya youth! The presentation willl include two youth films and a discussion about their participation in Unlocking Silent histories, an educational non-profit created to amplify the voices and identities of indigenous youth through the art of documentary film making. Each of the young people involved in the project select a theme that they care about and through a video ethnography process, the youth film, edit, and produce their own stories.

BAFA BAFA Simulation

This simulation is co-sponsored by WCE International Committee and The Upperman African American Cultural Center.

In BaFa' BaFa' participants come to understand the powerful effects that culture plays in every person's life by experiencing it themselves through a cultural simulation. It may be used to help participants prepare for living and working in another culture or to learn how to work with people from other departments, disciplines, genders, races, and ages. BaFa' BaFa' is interactive, engaging and safe, and is widely used in professional, academic and community organizations.
This is first come first serve so make sure to come early!
