-Awareness-

Invisible Children
Saturday, April 22

From car accidents to cancer patients, tragedies happen all around us every day. But sometimes you see something that's so terrible, you just can't ignore it. That's the aim of "Invisible Children," a film made by three young filmmakers who flew from Southern California to Africa in search of a story. They found one: the thousands of children who are abducted and abused, used as soldiers and pawns in the 20-year-long war that is raging in Northern Uganda. The film evolved into a nonprofit organization called Invisible Children, Inc. See the film on April 22 at the Three Roots Coffee House (1020 S. Mill Ave., Tempe) and enjoy music and dancing from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. But whatever you do, don't just pass this off as another tragedy to ignore.

Turning Point Opening Reception
Friday, April 21

"Turning Point: Inspired by the Edward Jacobson Collection of Turned Wooden Bowls" is the newest exhibit opening at the ASU Art Museum's Turk Gallery. On display April 22 - August 12, the exhibit will show off ASU's collection of turned wood bowls. OK, cool -- now what the heck is a turned wood bowl? It turns out that an artist can cut wood by spinning it on a lathe, a device almost like a potter's wheel for hard materials instead of clay. With the help of other tools like chisels, artists can take a solid block and transform it into a piece of art. Check it out yourself at the opening reception from 6 p.m. - 8 p.m. on Friday, and see a live demonstration by nationally-known artist and ASU professor Tom Eckert.

Devils in Disguise

Devils in Disguise
Saturday, April 22

It's good for your soul to do community service, not because you have a certain number of hours to fill or an obligation to get signed off on, but because you want to. The ASU Community Service Coalition is giving you the opportunity to feel good about yourself while helping others through Devils in Disguise, a day of volunteering at various projects throughout the Valley. They include stuffing envelopes at the Humane Society, sorting clothes at the Sojourner Center and playing with kids at the Ronald McDonald House, among seven other options. Projects go from 8 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Register and get more information at www.asu.edu/studentaffairs/mu/community.

Cambodian Stories
Saturday, April 22

If you want to experience something you've never seen before, "Cambodian Stories" promises to be an eye-opener. "Theater-of-movement" artists Eiko and Koma combine dance, movement and painting to create a new art form. With Japanese butoh and German modern dance, borrowing from elements of Taoism and Zen Buddhism, "Cambodian Stories" combines movement with the visual art of 10 young artists from Phnom Penh, Cambodia. The artists dance and paint on stage, creating a colorful, live painting as they perform that provides a glimpse into their rich heritage. See the performance at Gammage Auditorium (1200 S. Forest Ave., Tempe), with a 6 p.m. pre-show and the real deal at 7 p.m. Tickets are $20 at ticketmaster.com.
