Undegraduate students of the Health and Wellness class launch an on campus awareness campaign to promote prevention and sexual health in commemoration of  World AIDS Day 2016

World AIDS Day is held on the 1st December each year, and is an opportunity for people worldwide to unite in the fight against HIV, show their support for people living with HIV and commemorate people who have died. World AIDS Day was the first ever global health day, held for the first time in 1988. 

This on campus campaign will take place between 10.00AM and 2.00PM on Thursday, December 1st at the Lobby. The whole community is encouraged to participate to remind ourselves that, unfortunately: AIDS isn't just a disease of the past, and that protective measures to combat HIV and other STDs are still necessary today.

Join the No Glove No Love: Condoms and Cookies event on Facebook for more information and help us spread the knowledge, not the virus.

Finals are round the corner!! So is the Holiday season and the end to a very intense, fruitful and creative time in Valencia...

We think it's time to slow down before the last push of the semester, and so the Student Affairs and Counseling offices at the Valencia campus want to help by offering all Valencia students the possibility to decompress and relax through the participation in this helpful workshop. Facilitated by Dr Maria Zarza, we'll practice stress management, meditation and relaxation techniques that we will be able to then apply ourselves in the comfort of our own homes and that will help us deal with the stress of the last weeks of study and work. We encourage all students to try out these techniques and to incorporate them to your daily lives too as a regular practice to take better care of your bodies and souls.

Join us in Sala C on Monday, December 5 from 6.00PM to 8.00PM (feel free to join when you are available if you cannot be there at the beginning of the session) for a very needed space and time with yourself.

RSVP via studentaffaisvalencia@berklee.edu (snacks will be provided for those that confirm attendance!!)

Shifting the Conversation Series: Songs for Social Change (part 2)

Our Shifting the Conversation series for the Fall 2016 semester comes to an exciting end with the help of four talented musicians from within our community. Lili del Sol Atehortua (CPPD), Nathalie Hernandez (Study Abroad), Devin Malloy (CPPD) and Massimiliano Mechelli (SFTV) will share with us their original compositions and the individual creative processes behind them.

Through the generous sharing of their original compositions, showing a myriad of musical genres, we hope to engage participants in acknowledging and experiencing the power of Music, and all forms of Art, to instigate positive change in our diverse communities. Music has the intrinsic power to move people -audiences- to their core. Using such power to help us, not only reflect on our individual lives as human beings and artists, but also as active agents in our diverse communities, capable of inspiring others, healing them, calling them to action and helping them reflect, unite and rebel against social injustices, is therefore definitely worth exploring as we look to find our place in this ever-changing world landscape.

In the spirit of President Roger Brown´s message as a reflection on the 2016 US Presidential Election: "For those who feel their voices have been silenced, let’s lift our voices in art and music and words and deeds and stay strong."

Join us on Friday December 9 at 1.30PM (new time!!) in B54 for this last chance for collective and inspirational reflection during this semester, and make sure you RSVP via studentaffairsvalencia@berklee.edu so we can secure some lunch!

Leaders from the Social Musik Foundation will visit the Valencia campus on Monday November 28 from 11.00AM to 2.00PM to answer any questions students might have about an interesting volunteering opportunity called “Musicos por la Salud” that the Student Affairs - Diversity and Inclusion office presented on campus this week. 

 

Músicos por la Salud is a project gathering musicians to perform micro-concerts at various hospitals within the Valencian Community. We believe this to be a very well-organised and impactful learning opportunity for our students as it is aimed not only at improving the lives of those receiving medical treatment, but also at providing clearly stated, and very unique experiential learning opportunities for our students.

 

Músicos por la Salud are looking to engage not only performers, but also composers, photographers, videographers, app developers and anyone interested in the social component of the music and entertainment industries to help them in their efforts to improve the quality of life of those in need.
