October 30-31st State-Wide Mobilizing Conference

21 Oct

A re-post from the Statewide Coordination Committee:

Regardless of who is elected after the November 2nd, on November 3rd, we still face a long-term systematic attack on public education and public workers.

Conference Information & Registration

We, the people, have the democratic power to ensure that our public institutions effectively serve the public. But to do so, members of all regions and sectors — students, teachers, staff, unions, adult-ed, activists, and community organizations — must unite, take action, and contribute our voices and thoughts to the October 30-31st conference.

The purpose of the October 30-31st conference is to democratically propose demands, devise an action plan, and create a structure capable of defending public education and public services for the benefit of all.

We invite all supporters of education across the nation to attend and participate in the conference.

UCIRA: State of the Arts Conference at UCSD

17 Aug

UCIRA presents the 2010 State of the Arts Conference at UC San Diego

We are pleased to announce that registration is now available for the 4th annual University of California system-wide UCIRA State of the Arts Conference. This year’s conference will take place on the beautiful La Jolla campus of UC San Diego November 18th – 21st.

The theme of the conference, Future Tense: Alternative Arts and Economies in the University, provides a broad umbrella under which to consider the encroaching privatization of public education and the complex mix of economic, cultural and social forces currently placing pressure on the status of the arts within the research university, as well as the notion of the university itself. The conference schedule will include a welcome reception, social networking dinners, keynote speakers, presenters, performers, panels, a Pecha Kucha* style presentation, and the opportunity to attend music and theatre performances on campus.

For more information and to register for the conference please visit: http://www.ucira.ucsb.edu/conference.html.

This year is also UCSD’s 50th Anniversary and we invite you to join the celebration. For more information please visit www.50th.ucsd.edu and http://ucsdbydesign.ucsd.edu/SaveTheDate/.

We hope you’ll join in our journey through the conference, the state of the arts, and the UCSD campus as a shared experience.

See you in November!
