    ReCONNECT to Technological Opportunity Forum!

    Join us on February 10, 2020, in Raleigh at the McKimmon Conference and Training Center, for our fourth forum in the ReCONNECT NC series, ReCONNECT to Technological Opportunity. At the forum, participants will explore what their communities can do to leverage high speed Internet in an equitable way. We will start the day by entering a “time machine” to the future, to a time when everyone has access to broadband. We will hear how both rural and urban communities are using broadband for economic growth and will hear from NC communities that are actively working to best leverage high speed broadband for economic growth and community improvement. This will also be a working forum. We encourage community teams to come together, learn national and local best practices, and help design a plan for their community throughout the day. https://go.ncsu.edu/register-now

Apr 7, 2020: Global Film Series: Grazing the Amazon at Witherspoon Student Center

Grazing the Amazon, an award-winning documentary, explores deforestation and cattle industry in the Brazilian Amazon. There are 85 million cows in the Brazilian Amazon — three times as many cows as people. Agriculture is a key driver of the Brazilian economy, accounting for almost 24% of the country’s GDP in 2017, and Brazil is expected to play a critical role in feeding the rapidly growing global population. Yet since the 1970s, approximately 20% of the Brazilian Amazon has been cleared. This film examines this challenging issue at depth, through thought-provoking interviews with cattle ranchers, including some who have adopted and advocate sustainable practices, slaughterhouse owners, government officials and environmental activists.

Feb 18, 2020: Global Film Series: L’échange Des Princesses (The Royal Exchange) at Witherspoon Student Center

In this cinematic version of actual historical events, Philippe d’Orléans, regent of France, develops a brilliant but unorthodox idea in 1721 to propose to Spain’s Philippe V that 11-year old Louis XV marry Anna Maria Victoria, a 4-year old child princess. D’Orléans also proposes that his own daughter, Mlle de Montpensier, marry the young Prince des Asturies, future heir to the Spanish throne. The plan is intended to reduce tensions after years of war between the two neighbouring countries. Madrid’s response is enthusiastic and an exchange of princesses ensues in 1722 amid a lavish ceremony. But things don’t unfold according to plan.

Feb 15, 2020: NC State LIVE presents Shana Tucker at Frank Thompson Hall

North Carolina has a rich musical heritage, and pioneering artists like Shana Tucker are keeping this lineage alive. "Chambersoul" is how Tucker prefers to label her distinctive mix of lyrical storytelling, uplifting jazz, classical, folk, R&B and pop – all translated through her soulful voice and hypnotic cello arrangements.

Tucker has opened for internationally acclaimed artists including Norah Jones, Lisa Fischer, Sweet Honey in the Rock, the Blind Boys of Alabama and Indigo Girls. An interview with NPR prompted an invitation from Cirque du Soleil to join the company as cellist and vocalist for their show KÀ in Las Vegas, where she stayed and performed for five years before returning to North Carolina.

"Much like vocalist Esperanza Spalding with her double bass, Tucker and her cello blur the lines in our heads that divide classical, jazz, folk, R&B and soul." -- INDY Week
