Arapahoe Community College will host Scars: Breaking the Cycle on Thursday night, Apr. 25, beginning at 7:00 p.m. in Waring Theatre. This event will be held in conjunction with the closing-ceremony festivities of the Talking it Out: Getting to Agreement photo and story exhibit.
Scars, which is an ensemble-based theatre production, is based on the writing of students from the Red Rocks Community College Gateway Program. The show recreates and narrates real-life tragic experiences - and the subsequent 'scars' - of Gateway Program students. The stories examine wounds from family dysfunction, past regrets, struggles with addiction, incarceration and the long pathway towards healing.
The performance includes a talkback session directly after the play, where the cast, an RRCC theatre professor and a representative from the Gateway Program will be present to answer questions and facilitate discussions.
PLEASE BE ADVISED: Scars contains some graphic language and adult themes.
For more information about this event, or to inquire about accommodations, please contact the ACC Student Affairs Office at email@example.com or 303.797.5668.
Science Café presents a discussion with Dr. Lisa Johansen about genetically modified organisms (GMO foods) on Wednesday, Apr. 24, from 3:30 - 5:00 p.m. in Room M3750.
GMO foods – what are they and why are people worried about them? Humans have been manipulating the genetics of plants for thousands of years. We will discuss the difference in methodology and genetic outcomes between traditional cross breeding and the use of recombinant DNA technology. Pros and cons of GMO crops will be presented as well as information about how GMOs are being regulated in different parts of the world. Come with your questions and ideas, and let’s talk tomatoes!
Refreshments will be provided at this event, which is free and open to the public.
For more information, please contact Celia Norman, Biology Faculty and Department Chair, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 303.797.5851.
