2nd Annual Greenville Jewish Film Festival – One Center, Greenville, SC
Feb 22 @ 7:00 pm
The Greenville Jewish Film Festival
Celebrating art in more ways than one.
The GJFF is devoted to exploring Jewish arts and culture in more ways than just film. It’s why in addition to the incredible film screenings, happy hours and intermissions we’re serving up this year, the GJFF has partnered with talented local muralist, Adam Schrimmer, who will be creating an interactive experience for our guests. The artwork concepts will consist of themed paintings about the movies that are being screened. Adam will draw the image ahead of time in black and then during the event, Adam will guide the guests to take part in a paint by numbers experience.  Each event evening, a 4’ x 8’ panel will be completed by our guests that represents the movie being shown. The panels will then be donated as “traveling artwork” to businesses in the Greenville community in order to bring awareness to the GJFF.
We look forward to everyone’s participation in the symbolic and artistic endeavor!

100 Bells to Kick Off Upstate International Month – Clemson University Carillon, Clemson, SC
Mar 2 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

Clemson University Carillon

To Kick off Upstate International Month join Clemson University Carillon. National Anthems from around the world will be performed and you can enjoy listening to them from all around the campus.

Once a year, the belfries of the Upstate chime in unison to ring in Upstate International Month.  From Oconee to Spartanburg, and Greenwood to Greenville, the Upstate swells with tintinnabulation.  March 1st marks the beginning of our annual month-long celebration of the rich cultural diversity present here in the Upstate.  On Monday, March 2nd, at 12 pm, bells will ring from all corners of the region in recognition of the traditions that formed the basis of the Upstate’s diverse beginnings.  Bergamo, Italy, is one of Greenville’s sister cities and we pay homage to their bell ringing tradition.

Bergamo sits in view of the Alpine foothills and is one of the oldest cities in all of Italy.  Every evening at 10 pm, bells throughout the city chime 100 times to honor the tradition of the nightly warning that the great city gates were about to close.  The gates no longer close but the nightly ritual continues.

Hear what cooperation sounds like as the educational institutions and churches throughout the Upstate ring their bells 100 times.

Here’s a list of the anthems that will be played, the Clemson students playing them and their respective majors:

ARGENTINA Gabby Garringer, Language and International Trade

The images advance automatically and the presenter talks along to the images.  The total presentation time for each presentation is 6.66 minutes.

The presentations will all be very different, and they turn each PechaKucha Night into “a box of chocolates.” That’s what makes it so much fun.

Mar 8 all-day

International Women’s Day 2020 campaign theme is #EachforEqual

“An equal world is an enabled world. Individually, we’re all responsible for our own thoughts and actions – all day, every day. We can actively choose to challenge stereotypes, fight bias, broaden perceptions, improve situations and celebrate women’s achievements. Collectively, each one of us can help create a gender equal world. Let’s all be #EachforEqual.

International Women’s Day is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating women’s equality.

International Women’s Day (IWD) has occurred for well over a century, with the first IWD gathering in 1911 supported by over a million people. Today, IWD belongs to all groups collectively everywhere. IWD is not country, group or organization specific.”

Women as Climate Justice Champions
Mar 8 @ 4:00 pm – 5:30 pm

Join Dining for Women, UNICEF USA, and Women of Peace Corps Legacy on March 8 for an International Women’s Day celebration, “Women as Climate Justice Champions”. The event is broadcast live and recorded for on demand viewing.

The impacts of climate change are not evenly distributed around the world, and they are different for women and men. Women and girls are the most adversely affected, yet they are also well-suited to find solutions to prevent further degradation and adapt to the changing climate. More and more, women and girls around the world are becoming climate justice advocates. When women participate in decision-making at national and community levels, they can help devise effective climate change solutions that build stronger communities. Our International Women’s Day program will share how women all over the world are fighting for environmental justice in their own countries and communities.
