End Day First days of SUMC classes - Madrid Campus (Multi-Day Event)
First days of SUMC classes Spring 2016 [Madrid]
8:30 AM - 8:30 PM Drawing=Thinking
Conceived in tandem with Cannot Be Described in Words: Drawing/Daring, at The Art Complex Museum, Duxbury, MA, the ‘exhibit’ will activate the gallery by transforming it into an interactive maker space for drawing and thinking. The programming is conceived as a response to The Art Complex Museum exhibit whose participants (four of whom are New England School of Art and Design faculty) share a sense of daring: exploring new approaches, scale and mediums that expand the definition of drawing and add to what that definition can be. 

Drawing = Thinking enhances the gallery as a site actuated by the correspondence of drawing to thinking and vice versa. Workshops and demos will give students and the general public and students the chance to experience the many ways that drawing and thinking overlap.  The results from these will contribute to a growing exhibit in the space of the gallery from November through January. 

All workshops will be during student activity period –on Tuesday or Thursday, from 1 – 2:30p.m. 
Pizza will be provided 
Check the gallery website for schedule of activities:

1:00 PM - 1:30 PM Green Zone Training: Creating a Safe Space for Student Veterans

Green Zone is a training program developed to increase faculty and staff awareness of military and veteran culture.  The primary goal of this program is to increase knowledge and awareness of members of the Suffolk community to issues and factors faced by veterans, which are often invisible.  

 By the end of the session, attendees will be able to recognize issues facing veterans on campus; distinguish transitional difficulties from cognitive difficulties; engage student veterans with more understanding; provide appropriate advice and support; and assist in their academic pursuit.

 Attendees are not expected to become “experts” on veterans’ issues, or relied on to solve problems.  Rather, the hope is that individuals will be compelled to engage student veterans with respect, understanding, and empathy.  Green Zone was developed using the “Safe Zone” Program model - intended to provide safe spaces on college campuses, and positively impact campus climate.

Facilitated by Michael Smith, Associate Director, Veterans Upward Bound
