Club Events

Join MCLA Arts Management Club in responding creatively to a timeless talk (“Beyond Vietnam: A Time to Break Silence”) given by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. on April 4, 1967. We contribute to Revolution of Values–a nationwide day of creative action, organized by the U.S. Department of Arts & Culture–to celebrate the 50th anniversary of this speech and revisit its ever-relevant messages. Our participatory, spatial intervention invites the people of MCLA to write and create visual art around speech-inspired prompts. We will be located at the second-floor entry to Bowman Hall from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Tuesday, April 4, providing various supplies as well as a forum for meaningful discussion. In an oft-quoted speech excerpt that most directly inspired this event, Dr. King states the following:

“We as a nation must undergo a radical revolution of values. We must rapidly begin the shift from a “thing-oriented” society to a “person-oriented” society. When machines and computers profit motives and property rights are considered more important than people, the giant’s triplets of racism, materialism, and militarism are incapable of being conquered.”
