April 20, 2023 - Sept. 28, 2023

April 20, 2023 | Opening Reception @ 3:00 - 5:00 p.m. 

The Elastic Mind is an art exhibition concepted and curated by Kohl King showcasing a variety of digital and video artworks by selected artists from around the globe which creatively addresses and/ or relates to the theme based on the psychological term of the same name.

The Elastic Mind refers to the ability to think non-linearly and be fluid to survive in times of rapid change and uncertainty. In other words, to “have the capacity to let go of comfortable ideas and become accustomed to ambiguity and contradiction, the capability to rise above conventional mindsets and reframe the questions we ask, the ability to abandon our ingrained assumptions and open ourselves to new paradigm, the propensity to rely on imagination as much as on logic and to generate and integrate a wide variety of ideas, and the willingness to experiment and be tolerant of failure.” (Mlodinow, 2018)

Saturday @ 8:00 p.m. and Sunday @ 2:00 p.m. 

Broward College’s Theatre Department will present Thriving by Mariah Reed, from April 21-23, 2023. Presentations take place Thursday, Friday, and Saturday at 8 pm and Sunday at 2 pm. This production is free of charge and tickets are not necessary. Thriving will be presented live at the Performing and Cultural Arts Theatre on BC’s South Campus in Pembroke Pines.

Thriving is a series of monologues pulled from the true stories of people who have overcome great challenges. Rather than simply survive their ordeals, these individuals have chosen to see their hardship as an opportunity to overcome trauma and embrace gratitude. Uplifting and inspiring, Thriving helps us all realize that life is an adventure that, if embraced, can bring insight, perspective, validation, and even joy.

While tickets to the event are free, donations will be accepted. For more information contact theatre@broward.edu.
