Happy Earth Day! Here are some great events to partake in, read more about how VCU celebrates Earth Day here. 

Race and Society in the Atlantic World
A Symposium
This event is free and open to the public.
Wednesday, April 23
9am to 5pm
VCU Commons Theater
907 Floyd Avenue

The VCU Gender, Sexuality, and Women Studies Department is hosting our spring show titled (Performing (Place Placing) Identity). Our event will explore how and why certain ‘identities’ and ‘places’ are produced. It will attempt to address the appropriation of cultural practices by fine art institutions and examine how classism, racism, and sexism are still enacted. 
Ultimately, by exploring alternative and participatory forms of creative expression, this series will complicate the narrative of place and identity and show how society is formed by different categories of identity. 
Opening Night is Thursday, April 24th from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. 
Panel Discussion on identity and performance will be held at 6 p.m. 
Poetry Reading at 7 p.m. 
Film Screenings will take place at 8 p.m. 
The event will be held at the Crenshaw House 
(919 W. Franklin Street, Richmond, VA.) 

This event if free and open to the public.
There will be refreshments.
