‘We Are Nebraska’

3:30 pm
Johnny Carson Center for Emerging Media Arts
Julie Uribe,
All members of the College of Engineering community are invited to the next performance of ‘We Are Nebraska’ in which student interns on campus use a hybrid of applied improv and applied theater to share their personal stories. The approximately 60 minute performance will include real moments from the students’ personal stories as well as music, dance, and video components.

Topics in the stories include race, gender issues, sexual orientation, religious, cultural and socioeconomic differences, civic engagement, environmental issues, depression and isolation. The presentation will end with Q&A facilitated by one or more of the student interns. The action plan intended is to help every person on campus feel like they belong. By listening and watching about other cultures, experiences and lifestyles, the goal is to decrease feelings of anxiety, confusion and isolation.

The next presentation is scheduled for Friday, January 24 at 3:30 PM at the Johnny Carson Center for the Emerging Arts on City Campus, and is free and open to the public. The College of Engineering is pleased to be a co-sponsor of the ‘We Are Nebraska’ program.
