January 1 2019–February 17 2020
University Health & Counseling Center, 201

All Sizes Fit is a positive body image campaign that aims to increase body positivity and decrease the social pressures associated with obtaining an "ideal body." All Sizes Fit focuses on three principles:

Attention: Be in touch with your body and its signals. Your body is excellent at regulating and letting you know what it needs in order to perform optimally.
Appreciation: Appreciate everything your body allows you to do and the pleasure it provides. It is because of your body that you can engage in the activities you love and enjoy what life has to offer.
Acceptance: Accept all the assets you have rather than longing for what you do not. Much of your body composition is predetermined by your genetics.

All entries due by Monday, February 17, 2020. After we receive your piece we will send another form for you to complete where you can share more about your piece (e.g. title, artist statement, etc.)

https://oregon.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_0Gj2ScYNXMI7EdD

1st Place Prize: $100 Duck Store Gift Certificate
2nd Place Prize: $75 Duck Store Gift Certificate

Honorable Mentions (10): $10 Duck Store Gift Certificates

For any questions please contact Suzie Stadelman at sstadelm@uoregon.edu

We will accept entries from non-UO students, but only current UO students are eligible to win prizes. All entries will be screened to make sure they don't contain triggering or inappropriate imagery.

January 7–February 8
Erb Memorial Union (EMU), Aperture Gallery

Exhibit statement: These images were captured while in Cordova, Alaska, with the Science and Memory program in the UO School of Journalism and Communication. Science and Memory is an experiential learning initiative that is devoted to preparing students to tell stories of people and places adapting to climate change. In between conducting interviews and pursuing these stories, students also come face to face with the local wildlife that live side by side with residents of Cordova.  

Artist statements: Rhys Marshall is a current journalism/advertising student at the UO. He gained a passion for photography and travel ever since he bought his first professional camera five years ago. Rhys is currently pursuing more opportunities to improve his photography, and dedicate it to imaging adventure and the natural world. While he is still considering career path options, he knows that he wants to use tools of visual communication to tell the stories of the microcosms of life across the globe through accessible media. Instagram: @rhysmarshallfoto  Portolio: www.rhysmarshall.com

Denise Silfee is a current graduate student in journalism at the UO. She has been taking photographs ever since her parents gave her a pink Minnie Mouse camera for Christmas sometime in the early 1980s, and she has been making real attempts to take better photographs since she served as an education volunteer in Peace Corps Thailand from 2011-2013. Denise worked in education in Oregon, Thailand, Sudan, and Egypt for a little more than a decade before deciding to return to school to learn the craft of storytelling so that she can tell stories about people and the environment.  @denisesilfeephoto

Building healthy relationships is part of a great college experience. Whether they're friendships or romantic relationships, it is important to understand what a healthy relationship looks like and how to recognize an unhealthy relationship. Every relationship will have times that are not so sunny and this can lead to disagreements. Arguments in a relationship are natural, what matters is how we bounce back from it. In this workshop we will identify characteristics of a healthy and unhealthy relationship, ways to better communicate, and how to increase our Emotional Intelligence (EI) skills for improving interactions, relationships, and conversations with others. The workshop will introduce participants to tools that facilitate our interpersonal interactions, improve our ability to empathetically navigate the social environment, and better handle conflicts with the people we love. This workshop is free and open to UO students, faculty, and staff.

It took Johannes Brahms nearly 15 years to write his first symphony, and only a few months to write a second. The result: a warm, inviting, and even playful symphony full of life and joy that will cheer and charm you. Jean Sibelius’ heartfelt concerto gives Finnish violinist Elina Vähälä stunningly beautiful – and diabolically difficult – opportunities to shine on the Silva stage. We open with star American composer Missy Mazzoli’s lush and spiritual music, which pairs perfectly with what follows.

|ON SALE AT THE UO TICKET OFFICE IN THE EMU|

Bill Maher, host of HBO’s smash hit Real Time, is returning to Eugene with an all new stand-up comedy show in 2020. Maher will bring his special brand of political humor to the Hult Center for the Performing Arts on January 26 for an unforgettable evening of comedy. In this unprecedented political climate, Maher will have plenty of hot topics to cover in what is sure to be one of the most talked about comedy shows of 2020.

For more than twenty years, Bill Maher has set the boundaries of where funny, political talk can go on American television.  First on Politically Incorrect (Comedy Central, ABC, 1993-2002), and for the last thirteen years on HBO’s Real Time, Maher’s combination of unflinching honesty and big laughs have garnered him 34 Emmy nominations.  Maher won his first Emmy in 2014 as executive producer for HBO series, VICE. In October of 2008, this same combination was on display in Maher’s uproarious and unprecedented swipe at organized religion, Religulous, directed by Larry Charles (Borat). The documentary has gone on to become the 8th Highest Grossing Documentary ever.

In addition to his television program – which has featured such regular visitors as Howard Dean, Ben Affleck, Robin Williams, Arianna Huffington, Cory Booker and Michael Moore – Maher has written five bestsellers: True Story, Does Anybody Have a Problem with That?  Politically Incorrect’s Greatest Hits, When You Ride Alone, You Ride with Bin Laden, New Rules: Polite Musings from a Timid Observer, and most recently, The New New Rules: A Funny Look at How Everybody But  Me Has Their Head Up Their Ass.

Maher started his career as a stand-up comedian in 1979, and still performs at least fifty dates a year in Las Vegas and in sold out theaters all across the country.  Three of his ten stand-up specials for HBO – 2007’s The Decider, 2005’s I’m Swiss, as well as the hilarious, Bill Maher … But I’m Not Wrong, – have been nominated for Emmy awards.

Maher was born in New York City, raised in River Vale, N.J. and went to Cornell University.  He now resides in Los Angeles.

This show has no opening act. The show will begin promptly at 8 p.m. Early arrival is advised.

Performance contains adult language.

NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC LIVE—PURSUIT OF THE BLACK PANTHER

Wildlife photographer and cinematographer Shannon Wild is a passionate conservationist who lives in Africa but works wherever the wildlife calls. In her 15 years documenting wildlife, she’s been mauled by a cheetah, charged by an elephant, lions, and buffalo, and bitten countless times by snakes and lizards.

But her most recent assignment might prove her most difficult yet: producing a documentary about a rare black panther—the only one living in 250 square miles of dense forest in southern India. Get an inside look at the challenges and dangers of tackling an assignment in an unforgiving environment, from the narrow dirt roads to extreme weather to unexpected injuries—and worse.

This presentation is part of the National Geographic Live 2019/20 Portland Speaker Series and the 2019/20 Portland'5 Education Program season.

Kenny Broad, National Geographic’s Explorer of the Year for 2011, is also an accomplished cave explorer. He pursues this extreme and dangerous occupation not for sport, but to gain valuable insights into the freshwater world beneath our feet. A witty and entertaining speaker and committed scientist, Broad uses his research to study climate change and groundwater pollution to help better manage freshwater resources.

Largely unexplored, unimaginably beautiful, and considered among the most hazardous places to dive, the flooded caves, or “blue holes” of the Bahamas, are a potential treasure trove of scientific knowledge. Broad leads scientific expeditions to these dangerous but fascinating environments, making discoveries with implications for fields as diverse as microbiology, archaeology, and even astrophysics.

“Underwater caves may just look like dark, eerie holes, but they can be critical reservoirs of clean fresh drinking water and are integral to the health of the surrounding habitats,” says Broad. “Exploring these caves, the inner-space where the highly vulnerable freshwater and marine environments meet beneath our feet, allows me to combine my intellectual interests with my need for adventure; hopefully, in the process, helping to reduce the negative impacts on our natural resources.” Join him as he shares the adventure and science of exploring this incredible underwater world, as seen in the August 2010 issue of National Geographic.

About the speaker: Environmental anthropologist Dr. Kenny Broad has participated in extreme scientific and filmmaking expeditions on every continent—from studying cocaine distribution patterns to venomous snakes to the deepest caves on the planet—to gather information and samples that shed light on little known environmental and cultural subjects. He regularly collaborates with ecologists, climatologists, hydrologists, psychologists and a range of other strange ‘ologists’. Kenny led the Bahamas Blue Hole Project which appeared as a cover story in National Geographic, with photos from the late Wes Skiles, with whom he was awarded 2011 National Geographic Explorer of the Year.

He is a professor at the University of Miami’s (UM) Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science, is Director of UM’s Abess Center for Ecosystem Science and Policy, and also Co-Directs the Center for Research on Environmental Decisions at Columbia University, where he received his PhD in 1999. He has published dozens of scientific articles on a range of topics. Broad is the recipient of the National Geographic 2006 Emerging Explorer Award and was elected a Fellow National of the Explorers Club in 2009 and a former member of the National Geographic Society Expedition Council Advisory Board. Broad also holds commercial and instrument helicopter pilot ratings and a US Coast Guard merchant marine license.

Why don’t black people talk about mental health? What are the mental health needs of black college students? Where do I find the support I need as a black student on campus? Culture - a person's beliefs, norms, values and language - plays a key role in every aspect of our lives, including our mental health. Mental illness doesn't discriminate but people do. People of color in the United States battle with microaggressions, cultural/religious/ language barriers, and negative stereotypes. Making asking for help even more challenging, additionally students of color often face historical and cultural barriers when trying to access mental health services. This workshop will examines clinical and emotional aspects of mental illness along with the myths and stigma, that surround mental health in black communities. The purpose of this workshop is to educate the community on black mental health challenges, history, and resources. This workshop is free and open to UO students, faculty, and staff.

In a realm where poets rarely intersect with stardom, the Opening Ceremonies for the 2010 Winter Olympics introduced us to Shane Koyczan. With a collective “wow” across Canada and beyond, we found the poet of our generation. And we weren’t even looking for one. The world took notice when Shane’s influential, anti-bullying, To This Day Project video went viral in early 2013 with over 14 million views and counting. Powerfully engaging and authentic in attitude, his explorations are relevant to our times in the way that Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell, Gordon Downie and Leonard Cohen are to theirs. But unlike the musicians that he’s often compared to, poets rarely infiltrate pop culture. Koyzcan emerges in a new wave of 21st century poetry that dares to belong to the people and speak directly to them in their own voice.

Shane Koyczan is not only a writer and spoken word virtuoso, but also a multi medium spoken word artist. His first published collection, Visiting Hours, was the only work of poetry selected by both the Guardian and the Globe and Mail for their Best Books of the Year lists in 2005. Destined to become a future classic, Visiting Hours is now in its third edition, and includes We Are More. The book remains in heavy demand and was the motivation for releasing Shane’s entire written catalogue in EBook formats.

Koyczan followed up on the success of Visiting Hours with Stickboy, a novel in verse that chronicles the dark and lonely journey of a bullied child gripped by helpless rage. Koyczan shines a light into the bleak world behind some of the most incomprehensible acts in our culture, and also shows the healing power of love. Written for anyone who has ever been a child, Stickboy continues to be hailed by teachers, academics, and mental health experts alike for its deft handling of the subject of bullying.

Shane returned to his roots with a collection of poetry titled, Our Deathbeds will be Thirsty, which was released in 2012. This book features the piece, To This Day, a poem about bullying that was made into a video by collaborating animators. That video, released in 2013, quickly received worldwide recognition by going viral on YouTube, receiving over a million views in a matter of days. It was released as a project to acknowledge and support national Anti-Bullying day. Since the videos release Shane has presented at TED Talks, where the audience leapt to their feet in applause. Sir Ken Robinson has listed that talk as one of his top ten talks on education. That TED Talk lead to him collaborating with TEDED to create a classroom tool that provides teachers a way to discuss anti-bullying with students.

Now this extraordinary work has been adapted into an equally moving and visually arresting book. Thirty international artists, as diverse as they are talented, were inspired to create exceptional art to accompany “To This Day.” Each page is a vibrant collage of images, colors and words that resonate powerfully with anyone who has experienced bullying themselves, whether as a victim, observer, or participant.

September 2014- Shane’s latest and highly anticipated release, “Silence Is A Song I Know All The Words To” is his first graphic novel. Encapsulating incredible imagery illustrated by Gareth Gaudin, Shane once again covers many beautiful and thought provoking pieces relevant to our time. “Troll” a poem about cyber-bullying and the challenges of managing and understanding this new breed of abuse by critically examining the deep and hurtful wounds of participating in this digital generation.

“Silence Is A Song” graphic novel is accompanied by a collection of songs of the poems featured in the novel, an astonishing musical collaboration with Cayne McKenzie of We Are The City and Hannah Epperson. It was produced by McKenzie, Epperson and Koyczan; mixed by Aiden Knight, and mastered by Brock McFarlane (Hey Ocean, Marianas Trench, Hedley). The assembly of songs creates a dimension to Shane’s message that is carried through into the amazing visual art in the graphic novel and further into the video collection that will accompany this incredible body of work.

Shane takes us from the page and further displays his talents as a multi medium spoken work artist in his latest collaboration with the Vancouver Opera on his novel in verse “Stickboy”. Shane takes on a new challenge as a first time Librettist as he transforms his work into the operatic drama, which will premiere at Vancouver’s Playhouse Theatre this October.

Shane Koyczan however, is best known for his award-winning spoken word performances. With his rhythmic verse in high gear, he navigates his audience through social and political territory with a furious honesty and a tender humanity that has brought audiences to their feet in New York, London, Edinburgh, Sydney, Stockholm, and Los Angeles, to name a few. He has received 5 star reviews for his performances around the globe. Winner of the US Slam Poetry Championship and the Canadian Spoken Word Olympics, Koyczan is truly an extraordinary talent that has blown the dust off of the traditional designation “poet”.

|ON SALE AT THE UO TICKET OFFICE IN THE EMU|

Nicholas D. Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn, bestselling authors of Half the Sky, return with a deeply personal new book, Tightrope: Americans Reaching for Hope. Looking with clear eyes at our nation’s governmental failures over the past half-century, Kristof and WuDunn examine the contemporary crisis in working-class America through the lens of the families Kristof grew up with in the rural, working-class town of Yamhill, Oregon.

Yamhill prospered for much of the 20th century, but, like many working class towns, has been devastated as blue-collar jobs disappeared. About one-quarter of the kids Kristof grew up with have died in adulthood from drugs, alcohol, suicide, or reckless accidents. “We wanted to understand more deeply what had happened to Nick’s friends on the school bus,” they write, and “how our country could have let tens of millions of people suffer an excruciating loss of jobs, dignity, lives, hopes, and children.”

Reporting for the book took Kristof and WuDunn to all 50 states, and they tell stories of struggling Americans across the country, ranging from the Dakotas and Oklahoma to New York and Virginia. Altogether, there emerges a picture of working-class families needlessly but profoundly damaged as a result of decades of policy mistakes. With their superb, nuanced reportage, Kristof and WuDunn — the first husband-and-wife team to share a Pulitzer Prize for journalism — have given us a book that is both riveting and impossible to ignore.

Price includes a copy of Kristof and WuDunn’s Tightrope: Americans Reaching for Hope. Books distributed at event.

A case of mistaken identity causes long-forgotten Hollywood silent screen star Norma Desmond to persuade a down-on-his-luck screenwriter to help her craft a script she believes will return her to prominence. Although finding the script abysmal, he takes the job in order to pad his bank account. But when the arrangement with the suicidal actress becomes untenable, he attempts to leave her, setting in motion a roller-coaster adventure that leads to a surprise ending. Rated as one of the best films of the 20th Century, Sunset Boulevard (1950) had 11 Academy Award nominations and won three.

A 23-year-old guitar phenom and innovative songwriter, Marcus King can simultaneously switch from swaggering rock to supersonic soul, having written songs and performing onstage for half his lifetime. All five members of the band—drummer Jack Ryan, bass player Stephen Campbell, trumpeter/trombonist Justin Johnson, sax player Dean Mitchell and the keyboard player —create a blistering, yet soulful unit that has honed their synergy through endless touring.

Marcus started learning guitar at age three or four. He has played professionally since he was 11 and always knew he wanted to make music his life. A fourth-generation musician, Marcus has followed in his family’s footsteps. His grandfather was a country guitarist, and his father continues to perform live.

From the start, Marcus earned rave reviews for his kinetic musicianship with The Washington Post describing him as a “guitar phenom” at age 20. Carolina Confessions, helmed by GRAMMY-Award winning producer Dave Cobb (Chris Stapleton, Sturgill Simpson), topped the Americana radio charts and received critical acclaim from the likes of VICE Noisey, NPR and Rolling Stone, who described him as an “electrifying rock performer.” Marcus also recently embarked on a string of dates with Chris Stapleton, who called him “one of his favorite artists” when he recently joined him onstage.

Marcus King continues to re-write his fast moving and surprising story. You can hear change in the wisdom of his lyrics and deeply soulful vocals, bringing sheer musical command to every performance.
