How you can support Art, Activism & Culture Week April 24 – 28

Dear BHS Community,

We are looking forward to hosting our annual week of activities to share in the many cultures at BHS under this year’s theme of “Art, Activism, & Culture”. We will celebrate the culture and diversity of the BHS community through art and activism. We plan to have lunchtime activities such as a student club fair and art show, as well as a show of performances to close out the week. We are open to hosting all student groups and organizations that want to get involved and also have a few specific requests for support.

How you can support Art, Activism & Culture Week April 24 – 28, 2017
  • Potluck on Friday: We would like to have a meal on Friday at lunch to build community through food and celebrate all of the participants in the week.The food could be a specific dish from a​ny​ part of the world ​that could feed from 4 – 10 people. Please contact Mr. V if you would like to share a dish.​ ​We are expecting a group of 60-70 hungry students.
  • Club Fair: We are also open to hosting community organizations that represent “Art, Activism, and Culture” during a lunchtime club fair tentatively scheduled for April 27. ​If you are a student club leader and would like to host a table at the club fair, please contact Simelia Rogers and Mr. V​.
  • Art Show: If you are an artist who would like to display images of art, activism and/or culture, please contact Melissa Gross, Simelia Rogers and Mr. V. We are collecting art now​ for a one-week display on campus.
  • Art, Activism & Culture Show: If you are or know a student interested in performing at the April 28th show, please have them contact Simelia Rogers and Mr. V. We are hosting auditions for performers (song, dance, storytelling, etc.) this week and after spring break. Audition sign-ups are outside of the leadership office in the cafeteria. Eventually we will send out an invitation for teachers to bring their classes to the show.

If you have any questions or want to get more involved in Art, Activism, & Culture Week, please contact Simelia, Melissa and/or Mr. V.

Thank you for your support!
