Weaving Our Stories (FSU) @ Strozier Library-107-K Study Room |  |  |

The Florida Council Against Sexual Violence (FCASV) invites you to Weaving Our Stories. Weaving Our Stories is a clothing exhibit that will travel to different Tallahassee sites during Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM) April of 2018. The MeToo Movement has created national discussion and allowed people of various backgrounds to come together and share the ways that they too have been impacted by sexual violence. Our display was inspired by The University of Arkansas’ What Were You Wearing? survivor art installation. Our exhibit’s aim is to further unify the experiences of survivors to build momentum for change.
Our exhibit is titled Weaving Our Stories, to symbolize the strength that comes from sharing our stories, creating community, instilling hope, and promoting healing across our entire state. This powerful display features the outfits, or similar outfits to those, worn by survivors during their assaults. These outfits represent various individuals and cities throughout our state, via our certified sexual assault centers. To learn more about sexual violence and what you can do on an individual level, please come out to one of our events and visit us online.

Mysteries Below Ground @ Tallahassee Museum
Apr 25 all-day
Mysteries Below Ground @ Tallahassee Museum | Tallahassee | Florida | United States

In the first comprehensive and complete exhibit of its kind, Mysteries Below Ground explores the intricate workings of 25 underground ant nests. This exhibit will reveal the enormous range of size and complexity of ant nest structure and reflects the range of scales in which ants live their lives. The exhibit also dives into Dr. Walter Tschinkel’s method of metal casting and the ways in which metal casting reveals a complete, precise and detailed version of ant nest architecture. Dr. Tschinkel’s casts have been featured in 16 museums around the world, from Paris to Hong Kong, including two casts at the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History. This exhibit will only be here until June 10, 2018, so don’t miss this extraordinary opportunity.

Classical Revolution Presents Musical Mixology @ Waterworks
Apr 26 @ 9:00 pm – 11:00 pm
Please note this event is reoccurring.  Please confirm there has been no interruption before planning to attend.

Last fall Classical Revolution—an organization that promotes the performance of western art (classical) music in progressive settings such as bars and cafés—established a new chapter in Tallahassee, Florida. Founded by Larkin Sanders (DM, clarinet performance), Cole Belt (DM, saxophone performance), and Ben Lougheed (DM, guitar performance), the events quickly grew into a regular, well-attended staple at Waterworks. Now, with Larkin, Cole, and Ben all back in town for the school year, the series will once again be performing concerts of classical music that are free and open to the public. Programs will feature works from all time periods, including ancient music with period instruments, baroque, classical, romantic, impressionist, modern, post-modern, and contemporary. Ensembles will range from traditional string quartets to contemporary percussion ensembles and non-traditional groups. Performers are graduate students and faculty from the College of Music at Florida State University. Waterworks and Classical Revolution plan to have performances scheduled the last Thursday of every month from 9:00 to 11:00 PM.
