AACC Brown Bag Series
*All brown bags are free and open to the public, and are often live tweeted on presentation days.
The series was established during the Fall of 2013 as a community-building lunch-hour program that enabled campus and community partners to share academic, artistic and activist works-in-progress. To date, 31 participants have presented brown bags on topics as wide ranging as their participation in the Smithsonian Folklife Festival, exhibition projects that consider the likeness of the Venus Hottentot, and the process of art-making using garbage and re-purposed materials.
This series is closely aligned with UIC's diversity strategic planning goal of creating a climate of diversity and equity in which individual students, faculty, and staff fell welcomed in their identities, valued for their contributions, and feel their identities can be openly expressed wherever they live, work and study.
