Presented by Utah Film Center at Online/Virtual Space

Jul 01 - Aug 31, 2020

A collection of short films curated by director/producer Zanah Thirus. These films were chosen to represent a cross-section of emerging Black creative talent, spanning budgets, genres, and moods. In this moment of anti-racist awareness, Zanah wanted to share with the Utah Film Center a breadth of filmmaking and storytelling that goes beyond the headlines and reductive narratives that we often see portraying Black voices. Prior to the pandemic, the Film Center was slated to screen Zanah’s feature Black Feminist, which we look forward to playing in a theater when we’re back in (physical) business.

A Poetic Evening with Rob Carney and Ken Waldman

Presented by Weller Book Works and Utah Humanities at Online/Virtual Space

Sep 29, 2020

Weller Book Works is excited to host poets Rob Carney and Ken Waldman. Join us via Zoom for a reading and Q&A: https://zoom.us/j/94317640568?pwd=MWVhSlJITHl4SFh3aGVLOFM3M1lRZz09 Rob Carney is author of Facts and Figures: Poetry. There's a lunatic logic at work in these poems, from the opening section of thirteen facts to the final pages inspired by Christopher Smart, the 18th-century poet locked away in an asylum with his cat. Here, astrophysics becomes an empathy lesson, spelling lessons give way to magic, and the best healing witch in Louisiana shares the stage with orcas and a hermit crab. Add to that a math exam that doesn't add up, and if/then conditionals that add up strangely; plus, the worst fire in Spokane, Washington, and the origin story of owls. Facts and Figures is saner than a calendar. Calendars have twelve months, but the year—like this book—has thirteen moons. Ken Waldman is author of Sports…

Presented by The Printed Garden, Booksellers and Utah Humanities at Online/Virtual Space

Sep 28, 2020

The Printed Garden is excited to host fiction reading with the deft and delightful Sadie Hoagland and Siân Griffiths. Join us for a reading and Q&A via Zoom: https://zoom.us/j/92972825508?pwd=Ry93NGViWVYrTVh4TEdlTDJNSlZlQT09 Sadie Hoagland is author of "American Grief in Four Stages," a collection of stories that imagines trauma as a space in which language fails us and narrative escapes us. These stories play with form and explore the impossibility of elegy and the inability of our culture to communicate grief, or sympathy, outside of cliché. As a whole, this collection asks the reader to envisage the ways in which we suffer as both unbearably painful and unbearably American. In ten short stories brimming with captivating imagery, Siân Griffiths, author of The Heart Keeps Faulty Time, spins the familiar on its heels. Clown parents parse their disappointment in their non-clown son and their fears for his future in a nuclear-armed world. A clockwork…

Evening Ethics: The Case for Universal Healthcare by David Colton

Presented by University of Utah School of Medicine and Utah Humanities at Online/Virtual Space

Sep 25, 2020

Join us for a presentation and Q&A with David Colton, author of The Case for Universal Healthcare. With the exception of the United States, all developed nations provide their citizens with quality, affordable health care. And, despite its having expanded access through such programs as Medicare, Medicaid, SCHIP, and the Affordable Care Act, nearly 20 million Americans still do not have health insurance. Worse, efforts by the Republican Party to dismantle the ACA and increases in premiums could leave millions more without the financial means to afford treatment when needed. Countries that guarantee health coverage to all their citizens have done so recognizing the health of the nation is dependent on the health of their people. This has not occurred in the United States, not only because powerful forces have mounted a vast campaign against it, but also because no plan with clear solutions and guidelines has yet emerged.

Presented by Utah Film Center and Pacific Island Knowledge 2 Action Resources (PIK2AR) and Utah Museum of Fine Arts at Online/Virtual Space

Aug 15, 2020

Before dying, grandmother Noe tells Mika the story of the Moai Hoa Haka Nana’ia. She tells her they also call him The Stolen Friend, since foreigners took him away from the island more than 100 years ago and never came back. Noe has never seen the Moai and she doesn’t want to die without having done so. However, an illness will stop her from traveling and Mika will travel with her grandfather Bene to see the most prestigious sculpture instead. This documentary film covers the journey in search of the lost artifact but it is also the registry of a social and political movement the island is going through: trying to reclaim the value of their lands and their objects that give sense to one of their world.

The main idea is to think outside of the gallery walls, expand the role of the artist, and to call upon everyone in the community to innovate and to reimagine lawns as both private and public spaces. While we stay home, stay safe, and social distance, we can still continue to create and to think about new ways to engage our city and our neighbors. While this time is full of change, loss, deep worry, and uncertainty, it doesn’t have to be art free! JOIN THE MOVEMENT! MAKE WORK TODAY!

We'll cover the most common diseases you're likely to deal with along the Wasatch Front as well as the insect pests that love to "bug" our tomatoes.  We will also cover a whole range of other problems that can result in no fruit, just a few fruit, or blemished fruit. A handful of these issues are covered each year in our "Growing Great Tomatoes: Cultivating for Health and Productivity" course, but in "What's Wrong with my Tomatoes," we cover many more, really allowing you as a tomato gardener to up your game and successfully troubleshoot most of the issues you're likely to encounter growing this popular crop. Lots of photos are included in the presentation, as well as tips for additional support and resources. Also, stay tuned for our popular "Organic Pest Management" course coming up later in August to learn the whole process of pest and disease prevention, identification, and management.

Join Swaner Preserve and EcoCenter and Utah Humanities Book Festival for a virtual lecture and discussion with Doug Tallamy, author of Nature's Best Hope; A New Approach to Conservation that Starts in Your Yard and professor and chair of the Department of Entomology and Wildlife Ecology at the University of Delaware. Recent headlines about global insect declines, the impending extinction of one million species worldwide, and three billion fewer birds in North America are a bleak reality check about how ineffective our current landscape designs have been at sustaining the plants and animals that sustain us. Such losses are not an option if we wish to continue our current standard of living on Planet Earth. The good news is that none of this is inevitable. Tallamy will discuss simple steps that each of us can- and must- take to reverse declining biodiversity and will explain why we, ourselves, are nature’s…

Sep 19, 2020

The King's English is thrilled to host Rachel Eliza Griffiiths and John Murillo. Access the event here: https://zoom.us/j/95036816292 In radiant poems―set against the evocative and desperate backdrop of contemporary events, pop culture, and politics―Rachel Eliza Griffiths reckons with her mother’s death, aging, authority, art, black womanhood, memory, and the American imagination. The collision of text and imagery offers an associative autobiography, in which narratives of language, absence, and presence are at once saved, revised, and often erased. Seeing the Body dismantles personal and public masks of silence and self-destruction to visualize and celebrate the imperfect freedom of radical self-love. John Murillo’s second book is a reflective look at the legacy of institutional, accepted violence against Blacks and Latinos and the personal and societal wreckage wrought by long histories of subjugation. A sparrow trapped in a car window evokes a mother battered by a father’s fists; a workout at an iron…

Access the event here: https://tinyurl.com/ydyhybne SAVAGE CONVERSATIONS BY LEANNE HOWE May 1875: Mary Todd Lincoln is addicted to opiates and tried in a Chicago court on charges of insanity. Entered into evidence is Ms. Lincoln’s claim that every night a Savage Indian enters her bedroom and slashes her face and scalp. She is swiftly committed to Bellevue Place Sanitarium. Her hauntings may be a reminder that in 1862, President Lincoln ordered the hanging of thirty-eight Dakotas in the largest mass execution in United States history. No one has ever linked the two events—until now. Savage Conversations is a daring account of a former first lady and the ghosts that tormented her for the contradictions and crimes on which this nation is founded. CROOKED HALLELUJAHS BY…

The Case for Universal Healthcare by David Colton

Presented by Utah Humanities at Online/Virtual Space

Sep 23, 2020

Except for the United States, all developed nations provide their citizens with quality, affordable health care. Even with Medicare, Medicaid, SCHIP, and the Affordable Care Act, nearly 25 million Americans do not have health insurance. Millions that do can only afford high deductible plans, which may prevent them from accessing all but emergency care. The U.S. is divided on political, fiscal, and religious grounds particularly in regard to the role of the social contract in governance. Conservatives believe that health care should be an individual responsibility with costs managed through the free market and little or no government. Liberals believe that assuring health care is a shared responsibility, though the government guarantees all have access. Because of this polarization, there has been limited effort to discuss health care from the perspective of our values and expectations as a society.

Oct 02, 2020

The U of U Black Cultural Center is excited to host Maaza Mengiste, author of the Shadow King. A gripping novel set during Mussolini’s 1935 invasion of Ethiopia, The Shadow King takes us back to the first real conflict of World War II, casting light on the women soldiers who were left out of the historical record. With the threat of Mussolini’s army looming, recently orphaned Hirut struggles to adapt to her new life as a maid in Kidane and his wife Aster’s household. Kidane, an officer in Emperor Haile Selassie’s army, rushes to mobilize his strongest men before the Italians invade. His initial kindness to Hirut shifts into a flinty cruelty when she resists his advances, and Hirut finds herself tumbling into a new world of thefts and violations, of betrayals and overwhelming rage. Meanwhile, Mussolini’s technologically advanced army prepares for an easy victory. Hundreds of thousands of Italians―Jewish…

Jul 31 - Sep 03, 2020

Traveling While Black The Green Book was a critical guide for African-Americans struggling to travel safely in the Jim Crow era. This 360 degree video explores its complicated legacy. This film offers a revealing view of the Green Book era as told through Ben’s Chili Bowl, a black-owned restaurant in Washington, and reminds us that the humiliations heaped upon African-Americans during that time period. Sandra Butler-Truesdale, born in the capital in the 1930s, references an often-forgotten trauma—and one of the conceptual underpinnings of the Jim Crow era—when she recalls that Negroes who shopped in major stores were not allowed to try on clothing before they bought it. Store owners at the time offered a variety of racist rationales, including that Negroes were insufficiently clean. At bottom, the practice reflected the irrational belief that anything coming in contact with African-American skin — including clothing, silverware or bed linens — was contaminated…

Welcoming Week: The Infiltrators Film Screening

Presented by Salt Lake Community College and Utah Division of Arts and Museums and Utah Humanities at Online/Virtual Space

Sep 15 - Oct 16, 2020

The Office of Diversity and Multicultural Affairs at Salt Lake Community College presents The Infiltrators. This event will be made available online from September 15 to October 16. Without warning, Claudio Rojas is detained by ICE officials outside his Florida home. He is transferred to the Broward Transitional Center, a detention facility used as a holding space for imminent deportations. Terrified of never seeing him again, Claudio’s family contacts the National Immigrant Youth Alliance (NIYA), a group of activist Dreamers known for stopping deportations. Believing that no one is free as long as one is in detention, NIYA enlists Marco Saavedra to self-deport with the hopes of gaining access to the detention center and impeding Claudio’s expulsion. Once inside, Marco discovers a complex for-profit institution housing hundreds of multinational immigrants, all imprisoned without trial.

Westminster Slam Community Poetry Workshop featuring Rachel Eliza Griffiths

Presented by Westminster College and Utah Humanities at Online/Virtual Space

Sep 12, 2020

Westminster Slam is excited to host Rachel Eliza Griffiths for a two-hour generative poetry workshop. Access the Zoom event here: https://zoom.us/j/99894593508?pwd=RXhYa2pLQXZYWkFMNFVMS2wzVEthZz09 Edwidge Danticat says, "Rachel Eliza Griffiths' mother died around the same time as mine. As we both mourned, she sent me incandescent words to comfort me, phrases that read like invocations, and felt like salves and balms. Her work has always wowed me with its beauty, depth, and luminosity, and there it was also healing me. Radiantly elegiac, this hybrid work of poetry and photographs is one we all need for living, loving, and letting go." This event is made possible with support from Westminster Slam and Utah Humanities. Zoom Conference Call Event Contact: Enan Whitby eow1223@westminstercollege.edu
