KEEP Reportback!keep 

Friday | May 6 | 4-6pm
Cross-Cultural Center Art Gallery

KEEP (Korea Education & Exposure Program) is a 16 year-old program that provides an opportunity to learn about the movements for democracy, liberation, and self-determination in Korea. Its participants learn about the history and current struggles for social and economic justice, as well as the broad-based movement for peaceful unification - issues not widely discussed among Koreans in the US or in US-based educational institutions. Representatives of the 2010 KEEP delegation will share their experiences and insights on the liberation and social justice movements in the Republic of Korea (ROK) and how they connect to the political work and movements that they are a part of in the US. Come join us to eat delicious Korean food and learn about the current struggles for justice in the ROK and how they are pertinent to you! If you have any questions about the reportback, please feel free to contactKyung Hee Ha khha@ucsd.edu or Sarah Won Shim swshim@ucsd.edu

Deconstructing Disneydisney    

Wednesday | May 4 | 4-6pm  

Cross-Cultural Center Library

Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Buzz Lightyear, Woody, and Pocahontas are but a few of our childhood idealized icons. Disney has been an intrinsic part and revered symbol of almost every kid's childhood.

Through an innocent lens Disney is a much dreamed fantasy- a world of fun, adventure, and carefreeness. It is a place where every girl is promised a prince charming, where happiness prevails and evil always vanishes. However, when using a critical and analytical lens Disney has been found to be highly problematic. It oftentimes plays on stereotypes of ethnicity, praises whiteness, attacks queerness, and perpetuates colonialism. Deconstructing Disney will offer us a space and an opportunity for discussion and analysis. Please join us for a fun and educational evening. Refreshments will be provided!

In Lak'Ech: Monologues of the Peopleinlakech    

Thursday-Saturday | May 5-7 | 7pm  

Galbraith Hall 157

In Lak'Ech, meaning you are my other self, is a Mayan greeting that is used to signify a deep respect for other living things and for the self. The power of this saying comes in its premise of reflection, you are my other self, tu eres mi otro yo. In Lak'Ech is a performance of the people by the people and for the people. Expression has the power to transcend the conscious reality in a way that can show us the connections between our mutual dreams and desires and perhaps manifest a vision of understanding across lines of difference. We invite you to join this conversation the heart and share your story as we share ours with you.

If you are a community alum, we want to see you and check in with you! So please jot the Friday, May 20 4-7pm down in your planners and come hang with us.

Control Art Exhibit    

Wednesday | May 4 | 6-8pm  

Dolores Huerta Room (Below LGBT Resource Center)

Join the Women's Center for a night of art exploring the topic of "Control". Throughout the night we will explore, through various art forms, the question of how a woman's relationship to her body changes when technologies such as the birth control pill, fertility treatments, and the like allow us to change or alter aspects of our body. This event is free and open to the public. Some snacks and drink will be provided. We will be displaying art from the community, as well as screening various documentary films."
