Hua Tunan – World Famous Chinese Street Artist – Eugene, Oregon

World Famous Street Artist Comes to Eugene
One of the most sought-after Chinese street artists is working in Eugene this week as part of the 20×21 EUG Mural Project. Hua Tunan was born in 1991 in Foshan, Guangdong province. His street art style combines traditional Chinese art with Western graffiti through the use of action and splatter painting to create bold compositions of animals. Images of Hua’s past work can be seen at http://huatunan.tumblr.com/.
Hua’s Eugene mural is made possible in part by partnership with Vistra at 411 West 4th Avenue, Eugene, where he is painting the exterior wall through June 23rd. Hua’s piece will be the fourth mural in the 20x21EUG Mural Project. 20×21 is an initiative of the City of Eugene’s Public Art Program to create 20 world-class murals in our community by 2021.
Also, this summer from July 29 – August 4, seven international and local street artists will create mural magic in the city during Eugene Walls.

Great leadership opportunity

My name is Yasmeen, and I’m the U.S. Field Organizer with Global Zero, the international movement to eliminate nuclear weapons. Recently nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize, Global Zero is backed by an international community of leaders and experts, and powered by the creativity and passion of young people who understand that nuclear weapons have no place in the 21st century. We use grassroots power and cutting edge policy to mobilize communities across the globe to get us to zero.

I am reaching out to you today because Global Zero is recruiting top young activists across the country for our year-long activist fellowship, Action Corps, and seeking applications from students at University of Oregon. The Action Corps announcement s linked here 

Action Corps leaders are at the forefront of the fight to eliminate nuclear weapons: spearheading the campaign in their city or campus, directing outreach in their communities, and leading as the face of a vision for a world without nukes. Leaders are mentored by Global Zero staff and world-renowned visionaries like General James Cartwright and William Perry as they learn about international policy, work with local and national media, lobby elected officials, gain leadership and campaign skills, and build their own Global Zero chapter to organize against the nuclear threat.

Hello Everyone!

Spring has sprung in my corner of Sweden and I hope it has in your world too!

The daffodils are fading as the tulips rise and trumpet their brilliant petals. Our 4 week old chicks are plump and the local wild hares are as prolific as ever. That’s life on a Swedish farm!

The first course was the Healing Children through Creativity Workshop and the second was the Healing Trauma through Creativity Workshop. An honor to work with an amazing group of people dedicated to helping children and adults in Bulgaria. Check out the pictures above and below for a peek at some of our creative processes.

I am part of a Hall Government Association for Hamilton West and as a Hall we are organizing a music festival event at the end of this Spring term, June 3rd precisely.

As part of this annual event, we have decided on a new addition to the festival, an ‘Art Walk’. This Art walk would be an occasion for students to expose their art, whether it be photography, design, or painting, on grids that would be posted on the lawn, where the festival would take place (which is situated in front of Hamilton Residence Halls).

Hamstock will take place June 3rd from 4 – 8 PM. It is a free access event for all students

I am the contact for submissions and my email address is on the poster: vdelon@uoregon.edu.

University of Oregon Dance Marathon is a student-run organization that
fundraises for our local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital,
PeaceHealth Sacred Heart Medical Center at RiverBend in Springfield,
Oregon. As you may know, the Children’s Miracle Network is a non-profit
organization that supplies hospitals across the country with the
necessary equipment and essentials to help millions of children through
their battles with their health. These children have illnesses that
range from birth defects to cancer and they, as well as their families,
rely on the support the Children’s Miracle Network provides. As a
student organization, UO Dance Marathon brings together the University
of Oregon student body to raise awareness and fundraise for this
worthwhile cause. Each year we put on a 10-hour ‘dance-a-thon’ called
Dance Marathon. At this event, participants can learn about the
Children’s Miracle Network and donate to the cause as the day goes on.

We are looking for dedicated applicants who
have leadership potential and passion for making a difference in their
community. This is an excellent way to gain volunteer hours and
experience.

The application will close on
March 26, 2017 at midnight
