Arapahoe Community College is proud to host Talking It Out: Getting to Agreement from Apr. 3-25 in the Second Floor Student Lounge at the Littleton Campus.  This exhibit is free and open to the public.

Talking it Out is a unique photo and story exhibit designed to increase public awareness about constructive conflict management and its many benefits.  The exhibit illustrates the successful use of conflict resolution methods in Colorado, celebrating seven different stories about how a willingness to participate in constructive and effective problem solving resulted in collaborative conflict resolution.

Colorado State Senator Linda Newell will serve as the keynote speaker during an opening reception on Apr. 3 beginning at 5:00 p.m. in Waring Theatre (Room M2900).  Newell represents Senate District 26, which covers most of south metro Denver area, including Bow Mar, West Centennial, Cherry Hills Village, Columbine Valley, Englewood, Littleton, Sheridan, Greenwood Village and parts of Aurora.

The ACC Student Leadership Symposium will be held on Apr. 12 in conjunction with this exhibit.  ACC will also facilitate professional development opportunities and an essay contest for the ACC community as part of this exhibit throughout the month of April.

The Department of Theatre Arts and Dance at Red Rocks Community College will present Scars: Breaking the Cycle during closing ceremony festivities on Apr. 25.  The closing ceremony will begin with a reception at 6:00 p.m. (in the Second Floor Student Lounge), followed by the Scars performance at 7:00 p.m. in Waring Theatre.  This ensemble-based theatre production, which is based on the writing of students from the RRCC Gateway Program, recreates and narrates real-life tragic experiences - and the subsequent 'scars' - of Gateway Program students.
