NVCC Fulbright Scholar to Present Caribbean Story Project

NVCC Fulbright Scholar to Present Caribbean Story Project

The multi-media presentation will focus on the interdisciplinary link of art and education to social and environmental projects.

Naugatuck Valley Community College’s 2013-14 Fulbright Scholar-in-Residence, Oonya Kempadoo, will present her collaborative story approach to ecological sustainability as her “gift” to the College on Tuesday, April 22 at 5:30 pm in the Playbox Theater. The project entails the building of an interactive website that will offer a multitude of ways for readers to engage with Kempadoo’s story “Naniki”, which in the indigenous Taino language means “to be active” or “spirit”. Based on this concept, the story has integrated interdisciplinary elements to link art and education to social and environmental concerns.
