CONVO: Sexual Assault Prevalence & Prevention
CONVO: Sexual Assault Prevalence & Prevention
Norton Center for the Arts – Newlin Hall, Danville KY

 
Sexual Assault Prevalence & Prevention with Attorney General Andy Beshear
Since his swearing-in in January 2016, Kentucky Attorney General Andy Beshear has tirelessly fought for sexual assault and rape survivors. After discovering a backlog of more than 3000 untested rape kits in Kentucky, General Beshear pledged to test every kit and has since tested 1000+. Last year the Kentucky legislature approved $4.5 million to alleviate the backlog, and General Beshear’s office allocated $50,000 to researchers at the University of Louisville to ensure a rape kit in Kentucky never goes untested again. His Office of Victims Advocacy works closely with organizations like the Center for Women and Families and the Bluegrass Rape Crisis Center in Danville. General Beshear truly personifies what it means to be an advocate and is passionate about sexual assault prevention and justice for survivors. He will discuss the prevalence of sexual assault on college campuses across the nation and what we can do here to make positive change. You’ll hear from SPEAC about ways Centre is growing a caring community committed to addressing sexual misconduct and ensuring all students feel safe where they work, live, and study.

Young Hall – Auditorium (Room 113), Danville KY

 
Life and Death in the Ancient Maya City
Mary Miller, Sterling Professor of the History of Art at Yale, and Centre’s Phi Beta Kappa Visiting Scholar for 2017-2018 will be the speaker. What was the purpose of an ancient Maya city? How did it enshrine both the practices of the living, and the veneration of the dead? In this talk, Maya architecture will come to life, in both palaces and pyramids, alongside the open spaces for markets and performances. Rulers and servants, men and women, dwarves and children, all played roles in the city, eventually to be interred within city foundations. Archaeological remains at some of the most monumental of Maya cities, particularly Copan, Tikal, and Palenque, will be evaluated in light of the cities’ achievements and the lifeways of their people.

Norton Center for the Arts – Newlin Hall, Danville KY

 
Healing the Planet One Plate at a Time
Though it seems simplistic to think that a bite of food can have such a big effect on the future, the fact is that we are where we are because of the kinds of food bites people have been taking for a long time. We can change our trajectory only when we appreciate the launch pad — our plates. This convocation will focus on the importance of what we eat. Joel Salatin, who calls himself a Christian libertarian environmentalist capitalist lunatic farmer and is co-owner of Polyface Farm in Swoope, Virginia as well as author of nine books, will address the link between what we eat and the landscape legacy we bequeath to our unborn children. Joel’s farm was featured in the New York Times bestseller Omnivore’s Dilemma and award-winning documentary “Food Inc.” and services more than 5,000 families, 50 restaurants, 10 retail outlets, and a farmers’ market.

*CONVO: A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder
Norton Center for the Arts – Newlin Hall, Danville KY

 
Getting away with murder can be so much fun…and there’s no better proof than the knock-em-dead hit show that’s earned unanimous raves and won the 2014 Tony Award® for Best Musical — A Gentleman’s Guide to Love & Murder! Direct from New York, where a most gentlemanly NPR critic said he’d “never laughed so hard at a Broadway Musical,” Gentleman’s Guide tells the uproarious story of Monty Navarro, a distant heir to a family fortune who sets out to jump the line of succession by – you guessed it – eliminating the eight pesky relatives (all played by one fearless man) who stand in his way. All the while, Monty must juggle his mistress (she’s after more than just love), his fiancée (she’s his cousin but who’s keeping track?), and the constant threat of landing behind bars! Of course, it will all be worth it if he can slay his way to his inheritance…and be done in time for tea.

DramaCentre presents Caryl Churchill’s Cloud 9
Directed by Patrick Kagan-Moore
 
This time-shifting comedy is both parody and spoof of the Victorian Empire and its rigid attitudes, especially toward sex. A marvelous send-up and a non-stop round-robin of sexual liaisons.
