Agora Madness!

Last week, the Uni community once again experienced the wonder of Agora Days. For those not in the know, Agora Days is a week-long schedule of special classes taught by students, teachers, and other members of the community. From ballroom dancing to cake decorating to the history of Motown, these classes offer something for everyone. The library had the honor of hosting three very different sessions: A Frank Zappa Odyssey; a Bollywood survey; and Story Skillz, a storytelling class focused on building narratives.

What looks like intensive writing is actually a spiral-drawing listening exercised inspired by Lynda Barry's Syllabus.

OMG-- Frank Z in the library!
Motorcycles, Bollywood style.

Cruising through Bollywood films.
Though not a relaxing week, per se, Agora provides an informative and exciting change of pace that is over all too soon. Thank goodness we have Agora Unleashed to tide us over until next year!
