Women in Migration

The Utah Museum of Fine Arts presents the ACME Session: Women in Migration. Utah is a welcoming city to immigrants, currently hosting 60,000 refugees fleeing persecution, violence and war.  Eight percent of our state’s population is foreign born with a large representation of migrants from Canada, Mexico, and China. Explore the political, social, and economic issues of immigration with session leaders from The Institute of (im)Possible Subjects—a transnational feminist collective of artists, writers, and researchers:

Damali Abrams the Glitter Priestess | Artist, New York City 
Dalida María Benfield | Artists researcher, Vermont College of Fine Arts 
Annie Isabel Fukushima | Assistant Professor, University of Utah School for 
Cultural and Social Transformation
Through film screenings, performance, and a video/media making workshop we seek to create dialogue and imagery reflecting the experience of women in these migratory times. Bring your stories and enthusiasm to learn about migration and how it impacts our communities. We welcome all ages, genders, and national origins to this timely discussion as we grapple with our twenty-first-century reality—people, family, and even objects on the move.

Utah People's Climate March

Climate change is being ignored by this administration. Utah People's Climate March stands with the worldwide march happening April 29, 2017, marking the 100th day of the Trump administration, whose policies have already targeted: - Shrinking public lands / monuments - EPA dissolution, Scott Pruitt appointment & grant freezes - Climate data being pulled from government websites - Climate change committee dissolution We stand with the voices that aren't often heard when climate change is brought up, specifically indigenous and minority communities and peoples all over the world that more closely depend on the environment for drinking water, agriculture, spiritual practices, and their overall way of life. Come show your support for real climate reform and demanding change as we march from the Salt Lake City Public Library to the Governor's Mansion to demand that Governor Herbert take climate change seriously. We will deliver to him the student-written Resolution on Climate Change that was summarily IGNORED by the Utah Legislature this session. We will demand action.

KRCL Presents Talia Keys & The Love

Talia Keys is a force to be reckoned with! As a genre crossing multi-instrumental "musical powerhouse" - SLC Weekly, she authentically performs and writes her brand of soul-funk-rock n' roll. Infusing unique vocal stylings with a storytelling hip-hop flow, while sourcing energies largely compared to the bluesy rawness of Janis Joplin and the fire of Jimi Hendrix. Synergizing that old soul vibe to new school beats. Best described by Katie Bain as "blistering." Having been "struck by her talent, stage presence and refreshing candor." - Insomniac: 2014 Best of Electric Forest.
