04/18/2015 - Art + Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-thon

Thu, 2015-04-16 20:00

Brooks Library is hosting an Art + Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-thon on Saturday, April 18 from noon – 5 p.m.

The impetus behind this global project is research which indicates extremely poor representation within Wikipedia of women artists, and women subjects in general,  as well as a lack of women contributors and editors of articles.

Attending this free event will enable participants to:

  • Establish a Wikipedia account and learn how to edit and write articles
  • Contribute to or submit original articles about women in the arts (and beyond)
  • Learn research skills for finding reliable sources of information to use in their articles

Anyone is welcome to participate: students, faculty, community members, women, men. Participants are welcome to research and contribute to articles on the subject of their choice. Additionally, we will have resources and subject suggestions for those who want to participate but do not have a subject in mind. We are focusing our research and articles on women in the arts and sciences from the Pacific Northwest. 

Increase your digital skills and contribute to the “Internet’s largest and most popular general reference work."   Please help us get the word out about this unique event to your friends, students, and patrons.

04/16/2015 - Central Theatre Ensemble presents: "Scapin: A comedy by Molière"

Tue, 2015-04-14 20:00

Central Theatre Ensemble presents Scapin, A comedy by Moliere
April 16-18 and 23-25 at 7:30 p.m.; April 26 at 2 p.m.
Milo Smith Tower Theatre
General Admission: Adults $12, Students/Seniors $10, CWU Student w/ID $7 www.cwu.edu/tickets

In this wild action-filled comedy, the wily Scapin, servant to the household of Geronte, promises to help in the affairs of his neighbor’s son, Octave, then to aid in those of his own charge, Leander (Geronte’s son). Both young men are madly in love with down-and-out beauties (Hyacinth and Zerbinette) and both need money to help solve their individual predicaments. Scapin understands a good trick will always win over  and he recruits Sylvestre, Octave’s servant, into his schemes. Overflowing with improvisation and madcap characters, this play is a riotous frolic of theatrical hijinks.

Parents may consider some material unsuitable for their youngest children. May include situations, language or actions that may startle some patrons.

SAAB founder and CEO Dr. Tyrone Bledsoe will present the history, purpose and mission of SAAB at a free public talk Wednesday, April 15 at 3 p.m. in Student Union and Recreation Center (SURC) room 301. CWU students, faculty, staff and Ellensburg community members are encouraged to attend. CWU hopes to establish a SAAB/Brother to Brother chapter in Ellensburg that will be open to all men enrolled at Central. This will be the first campus in the Pacific Northwest to establish a SAAB/Brother To Brother chapter and one of only three on the west coast. SAAB operates through more than 300 student chapters nationally and strives to provide support and mentorship to young men, guiding them towards a future of success.
