Film for Action: Love for Social Change

The film I chose is titled Love Has No Label and it is a very short (3:20) POWERFUL video campaign to fight discrimination and prejudism by promoting love as an indicator of one another’s acceptance of differences.

Alzheimer’s society is a membership organisation made up of over 20,000 members. They are working to improve the quality of life of people that are affected by dementia in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. Many of their members have personal experience of dementia, either as carers, people with dementia themselves and health professionals. This allows for a wide spectrum of insight and expertise that is channelled into making progress in all aspects of improving the lives of people that are affected by this degenerative disease, as well as supporting the families along through the various stages.

The word dementia refers to a set of symptoms that include memory loss and difficulties thinking, problem solving or language. Dementia is caused by certain diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease or occasionally a series of strokes. Alzheimer’s society staff provide local services including day care and home care for people suffering from dementia in the community. The support that the family members and partners receive is invaluable in order for them to cope with the increasing demands of becoming a carer.

Flow -What Is It?
Flow. The Secret to Happiness

Guest Speaker: Marsha De Salvatore (Feb. 17, 2015) 12:30PM Auriana Auditorium

711679_10151412310326210_1471165067_n Marsha is from Ohio. If you don’t where that is, don’t worry, you are not alone. To make things even more interesting, her parents are both from Calabria. This combination has led to her zaniness. She came to Italy in 2000 to find herself and somehow is still searching. In the meantime, while she has been paying off her fashion debt as an English teacher, she stumbled into acting. She has worked the stage in Italian and for the past 6 years she has been a part of Gaby Ford’s English Theater of Rome. She finally got it together and brought her crazy life experiences to the stage. As a wise friend once told her (Matthew Reynolds), if you want to perform it, then create it! Thus, Rome’s Comedy Club was born!

The Kickstarter Economy: How to Use the Power of Crowdfunding and Social Media to Turn Your Creative Project Ideas Into a Reality
Speaker: Justin P. Moore
Thursday April 11, 2013 at 6:45 PM
AUR’s Arianna Auditorium

jpm_eire2010_1618_700Based in Berlin since 2001, American artist, designer, world traveler, and food-lover Justin P. Moore will share his secrets of crowd-funding success via Kickstarter with the AUR community. In 2013 he successfully funded, published, and produced his highly-acclaimed vegan cookbook, “The Lotus and the Artichoke -Vegan Recipes from World Adventures.” His successful online campaign reached 220% of its initial fundraising goal, was a featured project on Kickstarter’s home page, and was represented in Time Magazine’s recent October 2012 article, “The Kickstarter Economy.” Visit his project page here.

Justin’s creation, “The Lotus and the Artichoke” features over 100 vegan recipes inspired by his travels and culinary adventures around the world. The cookbook focuses on the fusion of culinary styles from East and West and celebrates global traditions as well as new kitchen creativity beyond all borders. The lecture will delve into the topics of crowd-funding basics, which projects are good candidates for crowd-funding, how to create a successful campaign, using social media, finding a target audience, expectations and obligations, and more. Rumor also has it that vegan treats will be available for the audience to sample afterwards.

Guest Speaker: Paola Richard -Journalist, Media Relations Expert, Campaign Coordinator (March 27, 2013)

Make Trade Fair by Lindsay Swiggum

The other day I was watching a video on YouTube, a song from Coldplay’s 2003 Tour, and I noticed something written on the lead singer’s hand.  Make Trade Fair.com.  Further into the video it also appeared on the side of the piano.  Obviously this was advertisement for something, but I decided to look into it.
