Pamyua Residency Activities, Nov 20-22

We are thrilled to have Pamyua, an Inuit soul music featuring core members from Alaska and Greenland, visit UC Davis through a residency provided by course "Radical Storywork and Inuit Food Fermentation." The course is part of the SHAPE program, a Mellon Foundation funded project through the Mondavi Center at UC Davis. These residency activities have been designed with our SHAPE students in mind, but we are expanding this learning community with other invited guests.
