At 5 p.m. on Tuesday, October 14, WorldCanvass will explore contemporary Brazil. Our immense neighbor to the south—comprising roughly the same land mass as the U.S.—is the world’s fifth largest country and seventh largest economy. Bursting with biodiversity and undergoing rapid development, Brazil faces a host of tough choices for both its people and the natural environment. Our discussion will reach beyond the brilliant beaches and soccer arenas to reflect on the multi-cultural legacy of Brazil’s complex past as seen in everything from its language to uniquely Brazilian artistic expressions to the political and social dynamics that are actively shaping the Brazil of the 21st century.

The project is “a collaborative community art project that explores the stories of people who have resettled to Iowa from different countries through collective works of art.” There are workshops in stop-motion animation, mixed media, and printmaking. Community members may participate. The workshops and materials are free, but pre-registration is required. There will be an opening exhibition of the collaborative work on April 27, and the art will remain on display through May.

Humanity’s interaction with its natural environments, our use of the resources we have available to us, and the long-term viability of that use, pose major challenges for the 21st century. The University of Iowa is meeting those challenges on many fronts, from the daily operations of the institution to cutting-edge research that crosses almost all disciplines on our campus.

In recent years, we have seen more and more of the university community getting involved in efforts to improve sustainability practices. To give one example: Green Teams have formed across campus to evaluate and improve the ways that our various buildings handle waste, recycling and energy consumption.
