Dear UCLA community,

Working intensively since the start of Spring quarter, an eclectic team of undergrad and grad students, expert mentors from PCI Media Impact, and artist-producers from the UCLA Art & Global Health Center have created, scripted, cast, shot and edited a mini-serial drama dealing with urgent sexual health issues on the UCLA campus. With support from the UCLA Healthy Campus Initiative and professional film production assistance from Cut&Cue, we have created a high-quality and (hopefully!) impactful media product that we are proud to share with the UCLA community.

The UCLA Art and Global Health Center, PCI Media Impact, and the World Arts & Cultures 174B class invite you to attend the premiere screening of our Soap Opera for Social Change:

The [WHAT] We Want

12:00PM, Friday, May 16

Room 200, Kaufman Hall

1:00PM Reception, Kaufman 230

Food included!

Join us for a viewing of four 6-minute episodes that unfold a charged drama about parties, peer-pressure, sexual health communication, and consent. The videos will be followed by discussion concerning sexual health / consent / on-campus resources, and how to best roll out this engaging digital resource on campus.

Who should attend? Representatives from student services organizations focused on relationships, sexual health, and consent; Greek life staff and students; staff of the Office of Residential Life and the First-Year Experience; and any students, sexually active or not.

Please RSVP with Elisabeth Nails by Wednesday, May 14.
