Giving Tuesday, national day of giving

Seven projects participating in second annual Giving Tuesday competition

The Office of Advancement is excited to officially announce Giving Tuesday, a national day of giving at the start of the holiday season designed to encourage charitable activities that support nonprofit organizations. Giving Tuesday will take place on Tuesday, December 2. Check out the projects LIVE this afternoon at: https://alumni.antiochcollege.org/givingtuesday

The projects competing for votes in this year’s competition include:

Pollinator Path
The Antioch Farm
The Pollinator Path project on the Antioch Farm will involve student workers and volunteers planting pollinator-friendly plants along a meandering path for visitors and students to enjoy. It will also provide an ongoing learning laboratory for student study and experiment. The area’s native pollinators have been rapidly declining due to widespread pesticide use. This space will provide safe refuge and habitat for these important creatures. The Antioch Farm plans to use the $5,000 to buy the supplies and equipment for planting, and to pay for student-worker wages and labor costs.

C-SHOP Revival
Student-led C-Shop Creation Committee
The C-SHOP Revival project plans to create a social space for community engagement, fostering dialogue about important social justice and community issues, while providing coffee and snacks to the greater community. By organizing with other student independent groups, the C-SHOP hopes to become a sustainable hub for student leadership and programing. The project would provide a much-needed venue for student space and gatherings, and would fill a current gap in the student experience. The project would use the $5,000 to jumpstart the creation of this student-run coffee shop by buying equipment and supplies, including an espresso machine.

Engineers for a Sustainable World
Cooperative Education Program
This project proposes to start an Antioch College chapter of the national student organization, Engineers for a Sustainable World. Once established, the chapter hopes to be part of a global network of professional mentors, colleges/universities, and communities committed to sustainability. The group plans on engaging students in educational projects on campus that integrates both classroom knowledge and community connections. The project would use the $5,000 to pay for an annual membership fee to gain access to the global network and additional funding/support, revive the Bike Share program on campus and develop a sustainable design/life cycle study for building a barn on the Antioch Farm.

 Winning Victories through Debate
Antioch College Speech & Debate Team
The Winning Victories through Debate project comes from Antioch’s award-winning Speech & Debtae Team, which believes that the transformative opportunity to participate in debate should be open to all Antioch students and don’t want it to become a “pay-to-play” activity. The project’s goal is to ensure that the team will have the resources to continue to practice for, and win, victories, both at debate tournaments around the nation during a lifetime of activism after graduation. The project would use the $5,000 to pay for tournament fees, travel, transportation and training.

Defenestration Gallery and Arts Publications
WindowCil: Student-Organized Art Spaces Committee

The Defenestration Gallery, WindowCIL’s future student art gallery, wishes to create a space for student agency in the arts and support the development of artists by providing opportunities to display work, curate exhibitions, learn essential art skills, and participate in all levels of an arts organization. The gallery also hopes to produce publications, including a quarterly catalogue compiling the artwork shown during the previous term, art-writing, artist responses, and professional documentation of the work. This project would use the $5,000 would provide costs of supplies for the gallery, printing of the publications, food and other such supplies for events, plus provide an stipend for each artist.

Arts at Antioch
Herndon Gallery Student Assistantship Program
The Arts at Antioch project hopes to develop a comprehensive student assistantship program at the Herndon Gallery, which would pay students equitably for their labor and develop rich work-study experiences. In addition to building exhibitions that reflect the mission of the College and interdisciplinary academics, the Herndon Gallery provides an opportunity for Antioch students to gain in-depth, hands-on experience organizing programing and installing exhibitions. The project would use the $5,000 for student wages and to fund collaborative projects.

CSKC Resource Lounge
Coretta Scott King Center

The CSKC Resource Lounge project would like to create a Multipurpose Resource Lounge that will serve as a resource center, student lounge and meeting space, in order to meet the growing need for additional student space on campus. The space will assist in initiatives to create a welcoming and accessible environment for diverse students and efforts to support students in their sense of belonging. This proposed space would also offer a comfortable and private area for meetings and access to a computer and media resources for diversity-focused independent groups. The project would use the $5,000 for furniture, technology and multicultural media resources.

Antioch College presents “Softcops”

Antioch College will present “Softcops” by Caryl Churchill at the Foundry Theater on December 5, 6, 12 and 13, 2014 at 8 :00 p.m.  Antioch’s performance of “Softcops” is directed by Louise Smith, associate professor of performance, with musical direction by student Seth Kaplan ’15.

“Softcops” takes its inspiration from the book “Discipline and Punish” by the French philosopher Michel Foucault. This surreal, comedic and insightful play is a montage of characters and events from French history that traces the evolution of state control from instruments of torture and the guillotine to the panoptic city of Jeremy Bentham and our contemporary experience of surveillance. 

Caryl Churchill is a British playwright best known for her works including “Topgirls,” “Cloud Nine” and “Serious Money.” Considered to be one of the most influential playwrights in the English language, Churchill’s career spans more than 35 years. Her work typically explores themes of power and violence with unusual structural elements influenced by Brecht’s Epic Theater. 

The production of “Softcops” features original music and sound design by Seth Kaplan ’15 as well as additional music by Meredith Monk. The “Softcops” cast includes Sean Allen ’16, Alli King ’18, Seth Kaplan ’15, Gaerin Warman-Szvoboda ’17, Cole Gentry ’17, Spencer Glazer ’17, Hannah Priscilla Craig ’17 and Alexander Campbell ’16 who is also stage manager. 

Amanda Egloff is Technical Director and Michael Casselli is the media designer. Director Louise Smith has worked with the class to create a strong sense of ensemble. This is Smith’s first production since returning to the faculty as Associate Professor of Performance at Antioch this fall. 

Tickets for “Softcops” are $7.00 for adults and $5.00 for seniors and students. Reservations can be made by calling 937-319-0200.

"TAG! Territorial Negotiations"

The Herndon Gallery presents “TAG! Marking Territory”

A FUN street savvy exhibition featuring street art and artists negotiating territorial space claims on the public turf and bringing up conversations about overt and covert space claims, the give-and-take of community, individual, and personal interests each artist makes when making art in public spaces. Murals, panel art, graffiti, wheat paste, yarn bombing, street performers infuse our community with layers of sensory experiences in our shared public spaces–some as a gifts, others as claims.
