Creative Collaboration Arts Festival @ Wharton Center for Performing Arts Courtyard
Sep 17 @ 12:00 pm – 3:00 pm

This event is designed to bring creative minds together and introduce the resources that the arts community at MSU has to offer. This year, Creative Collaboration will take the form of an arts festival! We are introducing student artist galleries, art activities, interactive booths, live performances and the chance to meet other students like you. With over 20 student creative organizations present, this event gives MSU students the chance to get involved and make a difference.

Every student at Michigan State University is aware of how big this school is. With over 600 student groups, it can be more than a little confusing and overwhelming to try and get involved or explore your interests when there’s so much information thrown at you on a daily basis, especially during Welcome Week. That’s why we created the MSU Arts Council and CREATIVE COLLABORATION. Now in its fourth year, CREATIVE COLLABORATION was formed under the idea of creating an arts-specific resource fair for new and returning students interested in pursuing creative endeavors and getting involved with the arts here at MSU, as well as creating a strong and collaborative arts community where groups can work together to create amazing events and establish long-term partnerships. Different groups from dance, visual arts, music, theatre, culture, and other art forms set up informational booths that showcase their work, activities, and events, meant to increase awareness and recruit new members. During the event, there are also numerous giveaways and awesome performances from the groups and fellow students. Whether you are looking for a networking opportunity, to improve your artistic skill set, or just for a creative outlet, CREATIVE COLLABORATION brings in groups that offer unique ways to engage with the arts and with MSU. Come out and join us, enjoy some live entertainment, meet new friends, and be a part of this amazing arts community. We hope to see you there!

Sands of Silence @ Green Room in the Main Library
Mar 26 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Sands of Silence features a 15-­year quest to expose the underworld of sexual exploitation and trafficking from Asia to the Americas, which leads world­-reporter and filmmaker Chelo Alvarez­ Stehle back to the windswept beach where her childhood ended and family secrets began. As Chelo documents the transformation of sex trafficking survivors, she meets Virginia Isaias, a Mexican woman whose life is engulfed in a cycle of sexual exploitation. Escaping with her six-month-old daughter from a sex trafficking ring in Mexico, Virginia crosses the US border in search of freedom. After years of hard work, Virginia begins to rebuild her life and speaks out about her ordeal for the first time in this documentary. Virginia, who barely speaks English, becomes a US citizen and a prominent advocate for other sexual exploitation survivors in the Latino community in Southern California by setting up a non-profit.

We are honored to be able to bring Chelo Alvarez-Stehle to MSU. As a reporter and documentary filmmaker, she has worked for close to two decades exposing stories of sexual exploitation and trafficking. Born in Spain, she worked in Japan in documentaries for NHK and became Tokyo’s and then Los Angeles’ correspondent for Spain’s
El Mundo daily. Recently, she co-produced Through The Wall, a short documentary about a family divided by the US/Mexico border, which won the 2016 Imagen Awards. Her most recent journalistic work has appeared in The Guardian, The Huffington Post, and Documentary Magazine.

The screening is sponsored by: Department of Writing, Rhetoric, and American Cultures, College of Arts and Letters, Chicano and Latino Studies, Film Studies Program, Department of Media and Information, Department of Sociology, The Hub, Matrix, and the College of Music.
