Events on campus: April 22-26
Many students and organizations host events at Emerson and broadcast them on EmConnect’s event page and fliers on bulletin boards around campus. The Beacon’s Living Arts section went through the events for the next week and picked out a few that seemed interesting.
Environmental Justice Passover Seder
On Monday, Emerson Hillel will host its annual Passover Seder. In honor of Earth Day, Emerson Hillel members will also discuss how Passover can open a discussion about taking care of the planet. A kosher meal will be provided. The event will be held in the Bill Bordy Theater from 6 to 9 p.m.
XeCult Zine Release Show
XeCult, an Emerson artistic collective for queer people, will release their magazine on Tuesday. The event will take place in the Bill Bordy Theater from 6 to 10 p.m. and will include music from WECB and performances from the band Crawler. WECB will also release its zine, Soundbite, at the event.
Federal Loan Exit Counseling Drop-In Session
Money Matters and the Office of Student Success will hold a drop-in session for graduating seniors to offer advice for completing the required loan exit counseling. The 30-minute sessions require participants to bring a driver’s license, names and contact information for three references, and Federal Student Aid ID and password. The sessions will take place 6 to 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday in Walker building room 634.
Vogue Kiki Ball: End of an Era
Emerson’s Advancement Group for Love and Expression will host a Vogue Kiki Ball with London Mulan, Father of the House Mulan. Juss Precious will perform at the event. Various cash prizes will be given out depending on the category of entry. Tickets cost $5 for Emerson students and $10 for non-Emerson students. EAGLE will donate all entry sales to Boston GLASS—an organization dedicated to helping LGBTQ+ youth of color—and the Emerson Office of Student Success’ Student Assistance Fund. The event will be held at the Bobbi Brown & Steven Plofker Gym on Friday from 6 p.m. to 12 a.m. An ID or license must be presented for entry into the event.
Space, Place, Imagine, Sound
Undergraduate visual and media arts students and graduate Civic Media: Arts & Practice students will open two end-of-the-year exhibitions on Wednesday and Friday. The concurrent exhibitions will showcase work from their Space, Place, Image, Sound class. “The Medium is the Medium is the Medium” by undergraduates and “Reflect, Resist, Replay” by graduate students will open at the Huret & Spector Gallery on April 24 at 12 p.m and on April 26 at 12 p.m., respectively. Work ranges from interactive art to performance. The events are open to the public, but those without an Emerson ID must RSVP.
