Women in Migration, Refugee Integration, Poetry Origination, Dress Code Protestation
Hosted by Lara Jones and Living the Circle of Life host Braidan Weeks, tonight's RadioActive show focused on women in migration, refugee integration, poetry origination, and dress code protestation. And the phrase "glitter priestess" was uttered with reverence. Why? Because of The Institute of (im)Possible Subjects Collective, which meets Thursday, April 27, 6:30 p.m., at the Salt Lake City Public Library.
