Tourmaline at Amherst College

The Amherst College Stonewall Committee, Mead Art Museum and Queer Resource Center are pleased to welcome Tourmaline to Amherst College. Tourmaline is a video artist and filmmaker whose work “highlights the capacity of black queer/trans social life to impact the world while living what is simultaneously an invisible—and hypervisible—existence.”

Join us for a screening of Tourmaline’s short films, followed by a keynote lecture and conversation with the filmmaker. This program is presented by the Amherst College Stonewall Committee, Mead Art Museum and Queer Resource Center.

The film screenings will be from 5 to 6 p.m., and the keynote talk and Q&A from 6 to 7:15 p.m.

Free and open to all!

If you have accessibility concerns, please contact Danielle Amodeo.

“Peace in the Home”

The Department of Theater and Dance presents Peace in the Home, a play written and directed by MacKenzie Kugel ’20E about coming together for love, for family. It immerses its audience into the hearts and minds of seven characters wrestling with what it takes for two families from different cultural backgrounds and faiths to create peace in the home, together. This play is made of familial trials and joys, of aging parents, of what is lost and gained when children grow up.

Tickets are free and open to the public. Seating is limited. Reservations are encouraged. For ticket reservations, call (413) 542-2277.
