Following the criteria listed below, bring professional materials (no handwritten signs please) promoting your event to the KCPW studios at 210 East 400 South, Suite 10.

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.
Informed by the juxtaposition of personal adornments and the natural landscape, Doxey-Marshall seamlessly weaves the inner and outer world. Painting images from clothes hanging in her closet and combining them with skies, clouds, fallen leaves, branches and stars, she creates a narrative about how nature eventually ravages the objects we consider precious and then discards them.

‘Theatre at its most seductive’ Evening Standard
Following the hugely successful broadcasts of Coriolanus and King Lear, National Theatre Live brings the Donmar Warehouse’s highly anticipated new production of Les Liaisons Dangereuses to cinemas – broadcast live from the Donmar’s London home.
Directed by Josie Rourke (Coriolanus), the cast includes Elaine Cassidy (The Paradise), Janet McTeer (The Honourable Woman) and Dominic West (The Wire).
In 1782, Choderlos de Laclos’ novel of sex, intrigue and betrayal in pre-revolutionary France scandalised the world. Two hundred years later, Christopher Hampton’s irresistible adaptation swept the board, winning the Olivier and Evening Standard Awards for Best Play. Josie Rourke’s revival now marks the play’s thirty year anniversary.
Former lovers, the Marquise de Merteuil and Vicomte de Valmont now compete in games of seduction and revenge. Merteuil incites Valmont to corrupt the innocent Cecile de Volanges before her wedding night but Valmont has targeted the peerlessly virtuous and beautiful Madame de Tourvel. While these merciless aristocrats toy with others’ hearts and reputations, their own may prove more fragile than they supposed.

The Painted Veil exhibition aims to extend possible interpretations of the veil. Veils are rich in symbolism and are often thought of as pathways into other realms. They have the ability to obscure, separate, conceal, and disguise, while simultaneously drawing our attention and curiosity to what lies beyond.
