RevEx is back for one last time with our regular monthly edition of Spoken Word Brunch at the Pinch! By Sunday you'll be tired of Thanksgiving leftovers, so fill up your belly AND your mind by coming out to hear some of the most talented people in town perform while eating some awesome food. Host(s) TBA.
This is an all-format kind of show that will showcase poems (literary, slam, or otherwise), monologues, short essays, song lyrics, commentary, theater excerpts, the beginning of a one-woman show, etc. As an individual, a duo, or a team, there's always room on our stage. We will have experienced performer in the spoken word realm or some first timers. You are welcome to join us!
We are committed to diversity of voices from people from different backgrounds and while white dudes are welcome, we actively recruit performers of color, women, LGBTQ, and performers with disabilities.
For more event information and to check out the line-up, please see the Facebook event.
Friends!! Join us in celebrating the publication of "One of Us"! We will have beverages, books, a photo backdrop, and hugs and love.
You are invited because I seriously love you and am thankful to have you in my community.
This is a limited space event. Plus 1's are encouraged. A larger official book launch will occur tentatively February 16th (to celebrate Sandi's 3.2 birthday alongside the birth of her child, "One of Us."
Author Sandi Giver shares with fellow grad school social work, pharmaceutical, dental, and law school students about the challenges of going from service provider to service seeker after a violent sexual assault.
We must all remember that we can be the lifeline that supports someone when they may not have the strength to continue. It's on all of us, no matter what profession, to understand how we can support others.
What do you do when you are placed in a country where you don't know the depth of injustices and how they have impacted the individuals you are there to serve? Be curious, research, listen, adapt, laugh together, struggle together. At the end of the day, we all want to be treated with dignity, to know that we are desired, and that we are loved.
Skirt too short? Out too late? Drink too much? Learn how we can change the conversation around campus sexual violence from harmful to helpful.
