Emerson has many students and organizations that host events. This is exhibited through EmConnect’s event page and flyers on bulletin boards. The Beacon Living Arts section went through the events for the next week and picked out a few that seemed interesting.

International Cuisine

Tuesday is Emerson International’s fourth annual International Food Festival. The international student organization and the Office of International Student Affairs will host the event in the Bill Bordy Theater. Between 6:30 p.m. and 8:30 p.m., students can discover new cuisines while watching a live talent show.

In a Barbie World

Resident assistants Isabella and Spencer will host a discussion about body image and body positivity with Emerson Counseling and Psychological Services on Tuesday. The conversation will take place from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. in the Multipurpose Room and Barbies will be provided to play with for a nostalgic feel.

Half the Picture

The Bright Family Screening room will show “Half the Picture,” a documentary about the low percentage of women directors working in Hollywood, on Tuesday at 7 p.m. The documentary uses the current Equal Employment Opportunity Commission investigation into discriminatory hiring practices to talk to successful women directors about their career paths. A discussion with director Amy Adrion will follow the screening.

Comedy Show

Stroopwafel will perform in the Cabaret Thursday from 8 p.m. to 9 p.m. Since 2011, the comedy troupe aims to bridge the gap between audience and performers by encouraging spectators to create comedic theater. Stroopwafel announced there will be a special guest attending.
