A creative way to connect on campus: Open Spaces at ISU

CATEGORIES: Announcements

Sponsored by the Department of World Languages and Cultures, Open Spaces at ISU is a project that invites the public to learn a new skill, share their expertise and interact with others. Each event creates opportunities to escape the Instagram bubble and create face-to-face interactions.

The next Open Spaces event is Tuesday, November 30 from 7:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m. in the Great Hall of the Memorial Union.

Connect with real people from Iowa State, without the committment of a club or buying new gear. Recent events have included Salsa lessions and a Hacky sack game. Opportunities are determined by who shows up. So come join us!

The idea for Open Spaces at ISU came from Paris!

The city of Paris created a new center, 104-Paris. The center allows people from different backgrounds to meet and share their passion and skills. The idea is to promote cultural understanding and to break the borders between people.

Every day, young people come to 104 Paris to teach others something new.

How do you fit in?

What is your talent: Dance? Bring some music and show us! Juggling? Bring some small juggling balls and teach someone! Yoga or Martial Arts? Show off your moves! Calligraphy? Share your art! Music? Bring your instrument along and jam! What else? Feel free to share and explore.

Each event will vary depending on who comes to learn and who comes to share. You, not an algorithm, creates this reality. Show up ready for anything. Do not expect an organized agenda. This is an exploration of activities within an Open Space of possibilities.
