Next week, HHD is collaborating with the College of Arts and Architecture to sponsor “Cultural Conversations: For the Health….” an exploration of the ideas of health through dance, music, spoken word, visual arts and more. The programming developed by faculty and students is both great entertainment and thoughtful reflection on the ideas of health and culture.
I hope you’ll attend. The full schedule is below. Tickets, available at the door, at just $3.
And, now my invitation–I am willing to take up to 20 HHD students to the performance on Thursday, Feb 4–my treat. We’ll meet at Panera for a quick cup of coffee at 7 PM, then head to the theatre next door for the performance at 7:30. To reserve your spot, call Heather Zimmerman at 865-1427.
