Miguel Juárez will open the year-long celebration of the 20th anniversary of CultureWork: A Periodic Broadside for Arts & Culture Workers published by the UO's Center for Community Arts and Cultural Policy. Juárez will engage the campus community in discussion concerning representation of Latinxs and people of color in public history and museum studies through video conference on Friday, March 3rd from 1:00-3:00pm. In 1997, Juárez published the article "The Invisible Careers for Latinos: Public History and Museum Studies for CultureWork: A Periodic Broadside for Arts and Culture Workers." Twenty years later, Juarez finds that progress still needs to be made.
Preservation of cultural history requires cultural competency from programmers, arts educators, archivists, librarians, museum curators, and historians that can be passed on to future generations. As culture workers, how do we create tools, repositories, and programs that recognize the historical and cultural representations of communities of color? How do we appropriately implement such practices and peoples in the programs and educational offerings we produce that do not suggest tokenism? Juárez asserts that there needs to be a sense of trust, respect, and accountability to communities that have been excluded, marginalized, or underrepresented. He also suggests that digital technologies as well as neighborhood based programs can provide access and exposure to these cultural histories. Examples and ideas will be shared in this talk. Q&A will follow.
Juárez is a doctoral candidate in the Borderlands History Program at the University of Texas-El Paso, He holds a Masters in Library Science (MLS) and a Masters of Arts (MA) in Border History. He is the author of Colors on Desert Walls: The Murals of El Paso (1997) and is co-editor of Where Are All the Librarians of Color: The Experiences of People of Color in Academia (2015). His research interests include libraries and archives, artists and art making, borderlands history, public history, Chicana/o history, culture and urban and planning history. You can follow him @miguelJuárez. This event is free and open to the public.
Starbucks is one of the world’s most recognized brands. And with the new web series “Upstanders,” it has become one of the world’s most innovative media companies as well.
Through short stories, films, and podcasts, “Upstanders” shares the experiences of ordinary people doing extraordinary things to create positive change in their communities. By showcasing stories of meaning and inspiration to do real good in the world—rather than just look good—the series represents a socially responsible approach to strategic communication.
Join the UO School of Journalism and Communication in Portland for a conversation with Joshua Trujillo, whose career as a filmmaker and photojournalist has featured innovative coverage of important news events and everyday stories from Seattle to Afghanistan. Trujillo, one of the key creators of “Upstanders,” will talk about the ways companies and brands are becoming skilled storytellers, building ethical brand identities, and engaging with their communities.
This event is sponsored by the SOJC’s Portland-based Multimedia Journalism and Strategic Communication master’s degree programs, which equip creative professionals to tell the stories that make a difference while exploring the frontiers of journalism, visual storytelling, and branded content.

PwC invites you to join them to have a meaningful dialogue about being color brave on Wednesday, March 8 from 6:00 - 7:30 p.m.
What does it mean to be color brave? It means having candid conversations about race that can help us better understand each other’s perspectives and experiences so that we can make better decisions and secure better prospects for future generations. Learning about others’ experiences and perspectives is at the heart of our ability to build trusting relationships. It helps increase our cultural dexterity so we can better work across differences and support each other’s success. Acknowledging and discussing race is a first step to developing and sustaining an inclusive culture.
The Color Brave campus dialogues aim to educate and empower students, faculty, and university administration to have a purposeful discussion and address the issue of racial inequities that exist in America today. By being “color brave,” we can address the uncomfortable issue of race and increase mutual understanding.
From 6:00 - 6:45 p.m. we will watch clips from a dialogue that former PwC US Sr. Partner and Chairman, Bob Moritz, had with Mellody Hobson, President of Ariel Investments, about her powerful TED Talk “Color Blind or Color Brave?” We will also engage in dialogue about what we can do as individuals and as a community to increase mutual understanding. From 6:45 - 7:30 p.m., we will have an informal networking event to continue the conversations and further relationships. Refreshments will be provided.
This event is open to ALL students, faculty, and staff.
REGISTRATION: Please contact Carrie Rees at firstname.lastname@example.org to register for this event.

About the BE Series. Who could you BE?
College is more than lectures. More than tests. More than going through the motions.
It’s about finding out possibilities of who we could be and who we already are. The BE Series brings together thinkers, makers, disrupters in every field to share their ideas on issues that really matter. Innovation. Social justice. Mental health.
Each talk is aimed to spark inspiration for us to go out into the world and choose who to become. Maybe come up with a plan. Discover an insight. Find out what you are capable of. We choose speakers who are challenging the status quo and inspiring us to be more.
