Advanced Photography (Art 180) student seeks 2 female models in Fall 2018
Contact Romina Frohar: rominafoorouhari1374@berkeley.edu
The project is about the intersectionality of religion (Islam) and gender. Some images require nudity, because the project is about the female body and its portrayal and transformation through faith. I will be posting the images online, so I want the students to feel comfortable and approach the concept with an open mind. In exchange, I can do free headshots for the students.

Alonso King LINES Dance Center – Front desk and event support in exchange for free classes | Email Charles Schnitzer | San Francisco 

My name is Julianna Docking, and I am a 7th grade English teacher at a low-income charter school in Richmond called Invictus Academy of Richmond.  As a 7th grade English teacher, I teach a dance class every Monday and Wednesday for thirty minutes. My dance class has 11 amazing girls and boys who feel safe and loved while moving to music during our 30 minute block at the end of the school day. For many of them, dance class is one of the few places where they feel they can be themselves and completely accepted by others. I would love to bring in a guest choreographer to teach a dance class. I feel that my students would greatly benefit from seeing a seasoned dancer for an afternoon. Would anyone in the theatre or dance department be interested in this volunteer opportunity? Email Julianna Docking.
