[Activated Performance Hours: Wednesday, September 21, 6-8 pm Thursday, September 22, 6-8 pm, Fridays and Saturdays (12-8 pm), Sundays (12-4 pm) ] **Pitch Night Durham Grant** What is the current state of civil rights in your country? Do you feel protected and supported by the laws enacted by your government? Artist Stacey L. Kirby offers The Bureau of Personal Belonging as a setting for such dialogue about community, civil rights and belonging. Over the past 9 years, 115 performances and over 3000 participants, Kirby has shared a series of “performative interactions” – performances set within site-specific installations that are activated by viewer participation. The Bureau is an installation comprised of three ongoing works, The Declaration Project, VALIDnation and her newest work, I AM. Visitors offer written and verbal response as they interact with Kirby and performers from Grand Rapids. Kirby critically examines governmental process and legislation (North Carolina's HB2 and Michigan's SB993 & HB5717) while imploring us to trust in the validity of our own voices and our power to make an impact on the governing bodies that shape our communities.

"Music for Elephants" examines the relationship between humans and elephantine megafauna in the last 13,000 years. Interdisciplinary artist, environmental activist, and naturalist Jenny Kendler will exhibit her work. Kendler's new piece, "Music for Elephants," presents data on the current acceleration of elephant extinction, in part because of the ivory trade. According to Kendler, "Elephants and humans have much in common. We are both highly social animals defined by lifelong family bonds. We share our reliance on intricate forms of communication within our groups. We are both species who are ecosystem engineers—yet humans are engineering a planet where there may no longer be room for elephants." The exhibition asks, what might we lose if another species of elephant becomes extinct again?
