International Women´s Day Picnic: Be Bold for Change

Palau de les Arts Reina Sofia - Anexo SurAvda. Profesor López Piñero 1

The Student Affairs / Diversity and Inclusion Office invites all students, staff and faculty at the Valencia Campus to join the #BeBoldForChange campaign launched this year to conmemorate International Women's Day over a picnic at the riverbed!

Within the context of March as "Women's History Month", International Women's Day (March 8) marks a global day that celebrates the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. March 8 also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity... And that's what we are planning to do! During our picnic, we'll share our own individual personal and professional experiences and we'll also agree on a specific set of commitments that we can make as a community to make our immediate environment a more equal one.

The Valencia Campus is fully commited to the efforts of promoting gender equality within and beyond the music industry. This picnic is another opportunity to start thinking about what this means to you as an individual and how you plan to join and commit to these efforts!

We'll meet at Front Desk at 1.30PM to walk together to our secret picnic location... We hope you can join us!

Faculty Development Luncheon with Suzanne Ciani

The Capital Grille, 900 Boylston Street
Boston
MA
United States

Suzanne Ciani's career in electronic music has spanned over four decades, beginning with work in the early days of electronics (70s) with John Chowning and Donald Buchla. In the 80s and 90s she composed commercially for advertising and also scored the film The Incredible Shrinking Woman. Since then she has transformed her career into that of a solo artist and orchestral composer having garnered five Grammy nominations with her work. She continues today to be successful in the music industry as a musician/self-publisher. Over the last two years, her career has come full circle with a return to her electronic roots, performing solo modular synthesizer concerts. She was a featured artist at Moogfest 2016, and a documentary film of her career is currently in production.

Ciani was appointed an Ambassador of Artistry in Education at Berklee for the 2016–2017 academic year. The Ambassador of Artistry in Education program brings the highest caliber musicians and artists from around the world to work with students and faculty directly. Creating interdisciplinary projects that result in new works, the ambassador models the musician/artist as a multitalented, multigenre professional. The ambassador also serves as a liaison between the college and the larger art and music worlds, connecting students and faculty with artists beyond Berklee’s current borders.

Faculty, chairs, and deans are invited to join Suzanne and the Office of Faculty Development for an intimate lunch and conversation. Space is limited.

Please RSVP to facultydevelopment@berklee.edu by Monday, March 6
