  • - The Hmong people of Laos originated as an oral culture. A special cohort of Hmong refugees created a new art form while confined in refugee
    camps. Meticulously embroidered scenes on cloth transcend time and language to speak on behalf of their creators to provide a first-hand
    account of their heritage, daily life, New Year festivities, folktales, and neighboring peoples. With closure
    of the last refuge camp, this unique
    art form has become a dying art.
    Dr. Linda Gerdner, a renowned nurse researcher, will share
    images from her extensive
    collection of story cloths and
    discuss their cultural significance.

    - In the short time since her graduation from Boston’s renowned Berklee College of Music, singer-songwriter Liz Longley has assembled quite an impressive resume. While best known for her stop-you-in-your-tracks voice, Liz has quickly built a reputation as an accomplished songwriter, crafting intimately personal portraits through her music. Liz's ever expanding fan base is not the only group to acknowledge her talent. In 2010 alone, Liz took home top prizes at some of the most prestigious songwriting competitions in the country; the BMI John Lennon Songwriting Scholarship Competition, the International Acoustic Music Awards and the Chris Austn Songwriting Contest.

  • | 8:00pm - 11:00pm | Arts and Entertainment, Singer/Songwriter
    - Warm as summer sunshine, real as the truth, intimate as a long overdue visit between old friends ... such is a Jonathan Edwards concert. Four decades into a stellar career of uncompromising musical integrity, the man simply delivers, night after night - songs of passion, songs of insight, songs of humor, all rendered in that pure and powerful tenor which, like fine wine, has only grown sweeter with age.

    A highly respected repertoire that includes such classics as "Honky Tonk Stardust Cowboy," "Sometimes," "One Day Closer," "Don't Cry Blue," "Emma," "Everybody Knows Her," "Athens County," and everyone's favorite ode to putting a good buzz on, "Shanty." And then, of course, there's the anthemic "Sunshine (Go Away Today)," that fierce proclamation of protest and independence that resonated with thousands and thousands of frustrated and angry young men and women when it was first released in 1971. Almost 40 years later, at show after show, the song continues to be embraced by faithful followers and new fans alike.

    - Disability Justice, Radical Access, and the Academy

    From seclusion rooms to behavior plans, the schoolhouse is an emblem of power and control. Too often, disability is considered someone else's medical problem instead of a social justice imperative. We must examine how ableism centers the bodies and minds of those considered "normal" or "healthy," while others are "deviant" or "sick." Disability justice calls us to move beyond superficial inclusion
    – and toward transformative educational
    practices where multimodal access and
    participation become the norm.
