Dr. Alison Umminger, Professor of English, University of West Georgia
In a world of ever-increasing business and noise, how can contemplative practice add greater meaning and sanity to our daily lives? Is silence best understood as an absence or a rich space that we may inhabit? Join us as we investigate the very substance of silence.
The Other Night School
The Other Night School is a lecture series in partnership with Hills & Hamlets Bookshop, the University of West Georgia College of the Arts and Humanities, UWG School of the Arts, and AIR Serenbe. University professors give talks on topics of interest—historical, intriguing, and curious—in a setting relaxed and dynamic. Following the lecture is a conversation with the speaker, a question-and-answer discussion paired with wine and cheese.
NURTURING CRITICAL MOMENTS OF IMAGINATION
AIR Serenbe, the non-profit artist residency program of the Serenbe Institute, invests in artists of all disciplines. We provide the time and space necessary for the creation of new work, as well as focused public programming that brings audiences in close contact with creative processes and practices.
