‘Notre Dame: Unfiltered’ starts conversations regarding identity

first_imgJohn Salem | The Observer Show Some Skin presented four monologues exploring aspects of identity and shared experience, and directing listeners to campus resources.Senior Elizabeth Steiner, Show Some Skin’s associate producer for community outreach, said the event offered participants the opportunity to explore similarities and differences within the community.“Show Some Skin is a student-run monologue series that explores identity and difference in the Notre Dame community,” Steiner said. “We take anonymous submissions from students, faculty or alumni about their identities and allow other students to perform them in order to share the original story while allowing the person who submitted it to remain anonymous.”Show Some Skin worked with student government to select certain monologues that would promote discussion and direct students experiencing similar situations to campus resources, Steiner said.“For example, we take a story about LGBTQ+ students who feel unheard, and we pair that with resources such as ND Prism and others,” she said.Steiner said the event was put on to let students know they are not the only ones who are dealing with a specific issue or feel a certain way.“Here at Notre Dame, it can feel like our campus is somewhat homogeneous and that everybody has the same identity and experience,” Steiner said. “I hope this event showed students the amount of diversity there is on campus and the amount of resources there are for students to get the help they need.”Student government was also heavily involved in putting on the event, which is now in its third year of existence.Senior Nicholas Ottone, director of university policy for Notre Dame student government, said “Notre Dame: Unfiltered” starts important conversations. (Editor’s Note: Nicholas Ottone is a former Observer writer.)“The purpose of the event is to connect students to each other and existing campus resources related to race, socioeconomic status, LGBTQ+ and mental health,” Ottone said.Sophomore Ben Fecher said he attended the event to learn more about different perspectives at Notre Dame.“I attended because at Notre Dame, the minority voices are not always heard from the community, and I think this event is a great opportunity to hear what those voices have to say,” he said.Tags: campus resources, LGBTQ, Mental health, Notre Dame: Unfiltered, show some skin, socioeconomic, Student government Notre Dame student government and Show Some Skin collaborated in hosting “Notre Dame: Unfiltered,” a free performance showcase and dinner held in the LaFortune Student Ballroom on Tuesday.The event consisted of four monologues, each touching on different aspects of identity, performed by Notre Dame students. Following each monologue, facilitators seated at the tables with the attendees led group discussions about the respective monologue.last_img read more

Barcelona insider: Dembele and the stars who could be Premier League-bound

Their patience is running thin, as Barça’s will be, too.The unlikelihood of gaining a decent return on their record investment by selling from a position of weakness means a winter exit isn’t probable, whether clubs like Arsenal and Liverpool remain interested or not. If things continue on their tricky trajectory, however, the Blaugrana will surely decide to cut their losses and move the World Cup winner on in the summer.

We won’t rule out a winter exit. If there are clubs interested, Barcelona are interested in a sale, and the player is happy, we’ll work together,” the 1994 World Cup winner told Marca on Tuesday. Son ban confirmed as Tottenham fail with appeal to overturn red card First, talk of poor timekeeping and a lack of discipline away from the pitch that had occasionally appeared last year started to rear its head again. Then, Ivan Rakitic criticised the time it took for his team-mate to get stripped and ready to replace Lionel Messi when he went off injured against Sevilla. Late is bad, but a few weeks later the winger didn’t turn up for duty at all – Dembélé posted absent without leave from Barça training. The Frenchman left the club scrambling to locate him, only to eventually present a sick-note an hour and a half after it was due. A late-night gaming session the night before hadn’t helped, according to the Barcelona press.The veterans in Barcelona’s squad have now taken to giving Dembélé advice in public. “We have to help him see that football is 24 hours. You have to live it from the first minute to the last,” Gerard Piqué recommended. “As some of his team-mates have said – and Ousmane himself knows – it’s a privilege to be where we are. Sometimes you have to focus more and be more responsible with some things,” Luis Suárez added. RANKED center_img latest Denis Suarez is another who could exit the Nou Camp There is little doubt over the name most spoken in Barcelona during the international break.Since La Liga took a pause, Ousmane Dembélé has graced the cover of Mundo Deportivo twice, and rival paper Sport the same number of times. Unfortunately for the forward, it wasn’t for a good reason.Though at 21 he is still very much a work in progress, the £135m price tag, a billing as Neymar’s replacement and missing most of last year through injury, have combined to make this season one of immense importance for the France international’s career in the Catalan capital – unfair though that pressure may be.Unfortunately, after a bright start which brought five goals in all competitions by mid September, the youngster has since been more noteworthy for his absence from starting line-ups, and eventually, from the match day squad altogether.

With a year at Barça B followed by two and a half seasons with the first team under his belt, the midfielder has been given a more than fair crack at establishing himself at the Liga side, and it just evidently isn’t meant to be.
