Warren Gerds/Critic at Large: Review: ‘Words & Music – A Program of Monologues’ sparkles in Green Bay |

If you’ve got the horses, ride ’em. And so it was Tuesday night, with the horses being various performing/creative talent on the campus of the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay. Musicians blended with actors in a quick, one-hour showcase of imagination. The last time something like this was done on campus was never. In introductions, Kelli Strickland depicted it as “a hair brained idea, and we’ll see what comes of it.” Ahem. It’s a great idea, and the evening was a blast. Source: Warren Gerds/Critic at Large: Review: ‘Words & Music – A Program of Monologues’ sparkles in Green Bay |

Come be inspired by these women who are leading the charge in the STEAM disciplines in the Bay area.

Kelli Strickland: Building Creative Communities: 7 in 10 Americans agree that arts and culture improve the image and identity of their communities. So why is robust community cultural planning so flippin’ hard? And why should we keep trying to do it anyway? The arts and cultural planning process assesses the current community culture and creates an implementation plan to achieve a community’s vision. What does cultural planning look like in our region?

Sawa Senzaki: Got Milk? Psychology Lessons from Dairy Farming and Human Development: Culture refers to learning and participation in shared activities with other people. Activities vary widely—linguistic communication, social norms, eating habits, etc. Culture has interacted with human genetic evolution. For example, the gene enables humans to properly digest lactose in milk has evolved only about 9,000 years ago, when humans started farming.

Pegasis: Covers Used to be Originals: When was the last time you heard a song you’d never heard before? Not a version of a song, but the actual piece itself? We are here to give you an insight into the writing process of one of our songs. At the end you will probably be even more confused than before but that’s the beauty of songwriting. You are never sure of what you write until it’s written.

Get involved, jump aboard the STEAM Engine! For more information go to the STEAM Engine website or contact or 920-791-1237.
