Tuesday, October 25, 2011, 4 p.m. – 8 p.m.
Pratt Institute Brooklyn Campus
Organized by the Initiative for Arts, Community and Social Change (IACSC)
Contact:  iacsc@pratt.edu

In honor of Monica Shay, colleague, mentor, teacher and friend, we are launching an annual campus happening that will celebrate life, creativity and collaboration.

This event serves as a reminder to treasure our talents and enjoy our passions—and to do so in the company of others. We hope over time it will build informal community—between students, departments, campuses, staff and faculty.

In what we hope will be an annual event, the Brooklyn campus will be our canvas and we welcome you to join us in our celebration.  So far, we have a brass band, outdoor projections, impromptu poetry readings, performance art,  juggling, and sculpture installations.  How will you celebrate?

Bring your sketchbook outside, build something, play something, talk to a stranger. Improvise! Have fun, and do what you love to do!

The only limits are your imagination and, of course, zero footprint—we want to be respectful of those who work hard to maintain our campus.

Still curious?  Email us or come find us on the 25th of October!
