Make your voice heard. Issues such as food insecurity, mental health and emotional health, and social and cultural inclusion have a substantial impact on overall wellness for both the HCC community and the Tampa Bay area at large. Join Grounds4Art in a participant-driven event that will discuss how the upcoming mural by Cecilia Lueza might reflect upon these important topics. The artist will use the feedback from this session to inform her designs for the large-scale mural that will be created for the exterior of the Social Sciences building at the HCC Dale Mabry Campus during the spring 2020 semester.
A pre-reception will be held beginning at 12:00 p.m. for those who would like to learn more information and provide feedback but are unable to attend the entire event.

Oxfam Hunger Banquet is an interactive community event designed to bring hunger and poverty issues to life, acting as a metaphor for how food and other resources are inequitably distributed in the world. Guests will be assigned at random to a high, middle or low income group and then eat a corresponding meal, from nutritious to sparse. During the event, a master of ceremonies will share facts and stories about real-life inequality and invite guests to discuss their experiences. This ticketed event is open to the public with all proceeds to directly benefit the Dale Mabry Campus food pantry, FED @ DM—part of the HCC food insecurity initiative Food 2 Finish.
