TALK WITH AMBASSADOR WENDY CHAMBERLIN: DEC 8 | 7 PM

EXTRAORDINARY AND PLENIPOTENTIARY

Ambassador Wendy Chamberlin, a 29-year veteran of the U.S. Foreign Service, was Ambassador to Pakistan from 2001 to 2002, when she played a key role in securing Pakistan’s cooperation in the U.S.-led campaign against al-Qaeda in Afghanistan in the wake of the terrorist attacks against the U.S. on September 11.

Following her time in the Foreign Service, she has been President of the Middle East Institute since 2007. Previously, as Deputy High Commissioner for Refugees from 2004 to 2007, she supervised the administration of the U.N. humanitarian organization. Her talk at UMOCA will speak about her career trajectory, including her time in the

Foreign Service, and rising through the ranks to the top of an agency which has been notoriously difficult for women to advance. Amidst the panel discussions and talks that embody Fish Needs a Bicycle, Ambassador Chamberlin’s story is one that proves that excellence overcomes misogyny, both overt and covert. >View more

SENSE/ABILITY Tour @ Utah Museum of Contemporary Art
Dec 17 @ 10:00 AM – 11:00 AM

senseasbility

Created in collaboration with Easy to Love, Hard to Raise, SENSE/ABILITY aims to foster an accepting and understanding museum environment, in which sensory-sensitive children and their families will feel comfortable and included while discovering social concepts found in our exhibitions.

Winter/Spring 2016 tours will embrace a youthful perspective on the exhibitions currently in UMOCA’s gallery spaces. The global social issues that are expressed through the art will be simplified and edited by our educators in a way that that can be grasped and recreated in a specially tailored children’s art-making activity following each tour.

Space is limited to 15 families.
