While we hope that safety is practiced every day, there still lies room for unexpected situations. In cases like these, it is extremely important to acknowledge what is going on and to take proper action in keeping yourself, as well as others, safe.
Below is a link that will give you some insight and guidance as to what the safest procedures are in an unexpected situation. While we understand it is a very busy time of the semester, taking a few minutes to watch the video could make a huge difference.
We are pleased to announce the Architecture School Ethics and Leadership Panel which represents professionals who have used their architectural education and experience in order to advocate for social, cultural, and sustainability issues. We will be discussing how we define or redefine leadership roles in our society. We greatly look forward to hearing about the paths that each panelist crafted or discovered and their observations of the ways in which change can be effected. There will be a Q&A session at the end of the event. You may also watch the event livestreamed beginning at 11am at: https://live4.academyart.edu/arch-conference/ .

Two groundbreaking collaborations with The Center for Investigative Reporting (CIR) are joining forces to explore the intersection of live performance and hard-hitting journalism at Tides Theatre this March. StoryWorks (theater) and Off/Page (poetry) are developing a show that will present an unforgettable look at one of the worst housing projects in America. This immersive production – taking place March 20-22 – will delve into the lives of several Richmond, California teens, who are attempting to make sense of these challenging situations through an innovative artform that combines journalism, poetry, theater, storytelling, sound, light and culture.
Sourced from Amy Julia Harris’ Richmond housing investigation, the live program looks to analyze the concept of home through the daily experiences of Richmond residents living – and surviving – amid atrocious living conditions in the Hacienda and Nevin housing projects.
Under the direction of Tide Theatre’s Jennifer Welch and Off/Page Director Jose Vadi, the performance will be written by three young poets from Richmond: Donte Clark, Deandre Evans and William “Peeps” Hartfield-Peoples. The poets joined Harris in the field last year, interviewing sources and walking through dilapidated, mold-infested buildings. In the March performance, audiences will experience a dramatized version of their impressions, which were originally explored in the the Off/Page short film ‘This is Home.’
THIS IS HOME will be a multidisciplinary presentation incorporating the many multimedia components produced in conjunction with the investigation – assets created in collaboration with CIR, Off/Page, Tides Theatre, KQED and the San Francisco Chronicle.
