Presented by Salt Lake Acting Company at Salt Lake Acting Company

The inhabitants of a small farm in Alabaster, Alabama are no strangers to destruction and loss. But when an outsider arrives to help them make sense of the past, they must confront their mortality and deal with the trauma head-on. Through laughter, tears, and even a couple of talking goats, Audrey Cefaly weaves a darkly comic southern tale of redemption that examines how one reassembles the pieces of a broken heart. ALABASTER is produced at Salt Lake Acting Company as a part of a National New Play Network Rolling World Premiere. Other partnering theaters are Florida Repertory Theatre (Fort Myers), Capital Stage (Sacramento), 16th Street Theater (Berwyn IL), Kitchen Dog Theater (Dallas), ShrewdProductions (Austin), Know Theatre of Cincinnati, Phoenix Theatre (Indianapolis), Williamston Theatre (Michigan), and New Jersey Repertory Company (Long Branch).

An Introduction to HWI's International Program

Presented by HawkWatch International at Online/Virtual Space

Jan 26, 2021

Founded in 1986, HawkWatch International didn't always have an international focus. In fact, that wasn't even our name! Founded as the Western Foundation for Raptor Conservation, our work focused on monitoring raptors across the Western United States. Our journey with these incredible creatures stopped when they migrated outside North America in the fall. We then spent several years supporting local partners in Veracruz, Mexico with their migration site. Then in 2019, HWI launched its International Program with the aim of filling knowledge gaps and working to conserve the least known and most endangered raptors worldwide. An initial goal was to identify which raptor species were in the highest need of investment. In 2019 we did just this, identifying research and conservation priorities for all raptors in a scientific publication. We found that there is a tremendous discrepancy in where research and conservation efforts focus on raptors, with species in Europe and…

Free Live Stream: We Are The Radical Monarchs

Presented by Utah Film Center at Online/Virtual Space

Jan 26, 2021

The group was started by two fierce, queer women of color, Marilyn Hollinquest and Anayvette Martinez, as a way to address and center Anayvette's daughter's experience as a young brown girl. Their work is anchored in the belief that adolescent girls of color need dedicated spaces and that the foundation for this innovative work must also be rooted in fierce inter-dependent sisterhood, self-love, and hope. Its members earn badges for completing units on social justice including being an LGBTQ ally, the environment, and disability justice. The film follows the first troop of Radical Monarchs for over three years, until they graduate, and documents the co-founders' struggle to respond to the needs of communities across the US and grow the organization after the viral explosion of interest in the troop's mission to create and inspire a new generation of social justice activists.

It’s the perfect time of year to learn about the science behind snow. Join us for a fun virtual lesson on how snowflakes form, make paper snowflakes and build an indoor igloo that can stand up to the heat. We will finish the class off by making ice cream in a bag and listening to a special snowy storytime. Each participant will receive a kit that includes: Snowflake experiment supplies, paper snowflake materials, igloo making materials, ice cream in a bag materials (you provide ice, vanilla and milk)!
