Broadway Speakers Toastmasters Club @ Key Bank Building - 25th Floor Conference Room
May 3 @ 12:10 pm – 1:00 pm
Broadway Speakers Toastmasters Club @ Key Bank Building - 25th Floor Conference Room | Salt Lake City | Utah | United States

Toastmasters International is a nonprofit educational organization that teaches public speaking and leadership skills through a worldwide network of clubs.

In our community of learners, people improve their communication and leadership skills by filling meeting roles, ranging from giving a prepared or an impromptu speech to serving as timer, evaluator or grammarian. There is no instructor; instead, each speech and meeting is critiqued by a member in a positive manner, focusing on what was done correctly and what could be improved.

The Broadway Speakers club is known for our warm and friendly environment. We cater to people working in the downtown Salt Lake City area. Our meetings (scheduled for each Tuesday) are held to under an hour, from 12:10 to 1:00, in order to fit within busy calendars. Visit us and see if the club is a good fit for you!

ACME: What’s Hip-Hop Got to Do with Education? @ Salt Lake City Public Library, Glendale Branch
May 11 @ 6:30 pm
ACME:  What's Hip-Hop Got to Do with Education? @ Salt Lake City Public Library, Glendale Branch | Salt Lake City | Utah | United States

We’re examining hip-hop as a force for teaching and learning—from the corner to the classroom. Based on the idea that knowledge is the “fifth element” of hip-hop, we will ask questions such as: What kinds of learning take place through hip-hop? How can hip-hop culture help us rethink our approach to education?

The session will be an inclusive, multigenerational dialogue featuring short presentations and performances from local artists and educators led by Jarred Martinez, Anita Juarez, Saia Langi, and Rudy Medina of Truth Cypher—a local community of writers, storytellers, and spoken word artists; Luis López, University of Utah senior and Programs Coordinator at Artes de México de Utah; and Paul Kuttner, Education Pathways Partnership Manager at University Neighborhood Partners.

ABANA 2016 Conference @ Utah State Fairpark
Jul 13 – Jul 16 all-day
ABANA 2016 Conference @ Utah State Fairpark | Salt Lake City | Utah | United States

Artist Blacksmiths from around the world coming to Salt Lake City

The ringing of the anvil will be heard throughout Utah State Fairpark as over one thousand talented men and women come together to share their skills and talents with one another and the public. There will be eight demo sites where experts will display tented pop-up shops working during the days of the conference: including gas and coal forges, power hammers, presses, and various other tools. http://abana.org/Conferences/2016/contents/en-us/d1.html.

During the evenings, the public will be invited to view the exhibition of ABANA members’ work. On the nights of July 15th & 16th there will be a public demonstration followed by an auction of works created during the conference. These works will be donated by members to benefit the ABANA education mission. http://abana.org/Conferences/2016/contents/en-us/d2.html

The Artist Blacksmith Association of North America (ABANA) is a national association with over 4000 members from around the world. The group was formed in the late 1960’s, and currently leads the revival of the art and crafts of blacksmithing — which had mostly died out in the United States. Today, American blacksmiths have created a major art movement inspiring folks from around the world. Much of this work will be exhibited in Salt Lake City during the Conference July 13-16, 2016. Those wishing to attend the conference may register here: http://abana.org/Conferences/2016/contents/en-us/d5_Register.html. You are also welcome to attend the free portion of the conference on the evenings of Friday, July 15th and Saturday, July 16th.
