MENSCH FESTIVAL OF MUSIC AND ART

MENSCH is a festival of music and art designed to promote civic awareness for gender equality. Mensch is a Yiddish word for a fundamentally decent, upright, caring and globally aware human being, and these are the qualities the festival fosters. It is a positive, expression of personal and communal responsibility and commitment to artistic expression and social justice.

MENSCH provides a variety of Pacific and community groups, clubs and organizations a platform to display their arts and crafts and a space for staff, students and community members to gather, mingle, have a good time and gain awareness of important issues while listening to great music.

Last year our MENSCH band, ALMA DESNUDA (reggae) captivated the audience, and they will be back. 

The Center for Gender Equity will sponsor an art contest and award three cash prizes for the pieces that best adhere to the theme “Gendered Art.”

Come, join us, have fun and be a MENSCH! Sponsored by Pacific University’s ACE Board and the Center for Gender Equity 

NEED ARTISTS: Any individual, organization, or group that wishes to display (or sell) their artwork, or for more information, contact Katrina Lungren at lung5166@pacificu.edu.
