Talk About The Times: A Weekly Prindle Conversation - Every Tuesday at 2:00pm EST
"These are challenging times, and with each day that passes, we’re asked to confront issues we might never have encountered before. Should we continue to use services like Instacart during a pandemic? What should we do if a family member refuses to comply with social distancing recommendations? Are social distancing rules morally acceptable in the first place?
We discuss questions like these and more each Tuesday at 2:00p.m. ET. Any current high school student, educator, or parent is invited to join a Zoom discussion with Andy Cullison, director of the Prindle Institute for Ethics and host of the popular podcast Getting Ethics to Work."

School of Music workshop with fifth house ensemble - October 26 at 6:30pm EST
Programming is about so much, much more than the tasteful selection and ordering of music—yet this is where many program ideas leave off. Are you really telling with your programming and connecting it to your audience in the most effective way? Learn how programming relates to venue and site selection as well as how to pick the right partners both within and outside of the arts. In this workshop we’ll arm you with the right questions to pose of potential partners, explore the role of commissioning, and survey approaches to programming across a variety of spaces both traditional and adventurous. Your artistic programs will never be stale again after this invigorating plunge into sonic storytelling.
McDermond Center Speaker Series - Naeem Muhammed '13, Founder & Ceo of dreamt foundation - October 27, 2020 at 4:00pm EST
Join DePauw alumnus Naeem Muhammed '13 for a talk about his work starting the DreamT Foundation. Naeem, an Economics major during his time at DePauw, is originally from the Bronx in New York City. Raised in River Park Towers, one of the more dangerous areas in the Bronx, Naeem grew up in an area where very few people pursue careers in finance. He started the DreamT Foundation as a way to introduce financial career pathways to kids growing up in the Bronx, utilizing the natural grit and tenacity of those growing up in this area to cultivate and prepare them for a career in the financial world. Through the foundation, Naeem hopes to change the narrative for kids in the Bronx, leading them on pathways that allow them to thrive, rather than just survive and to create opportunities for positivity and generational wealth to those in his community who need it most.

School of music deep listening and social impact - November 19 at 6:30pm est
First pioneered by composer Pauline Oliveros after an inspiring trip to a cistern with a 40-second reverb near Seattle, Deep Listening is a practice with a number of community and education intersections motivated by the idea that making and experiencing music is everyone’s birthright. Through an array of activities including active listening walks, rhythmic machines, improvised text scores, and movement exercises, Deep Listening provides an astonishing array of tools for communal music-making. Strategies for guiding improvised compositions as well as designing musical experiences for participants of all backgrounds will be explored, as we experience how Deep Listening’s emphasis on mindfulness and play can transform people’s sense of agency and bring about new ways of relating to one’s environment.
