Kitakyushu 60th Anniversary Kickoff at The Swiss

Jazz
2019 is the 60th anniversary of the relationship between the city of Tacoma and its sister city Kitakyushu in Japan. To celebrate this milestone and to mark the occasion, The Kareem Kandi World Orchestra will be presenting a special evening of music at The Swiss in Tacoma to serve as a kickoff event for the year to come, which will include exchanges from delegates and musicians from both cities. For this particular evening we will have city officials from Kitakyushu in attendance who will be visiting Tacoma in preparation of the exchange. For the performance I'll be joined by Greg Feingold on bass and Stefan Schatz on drums. We'll also be featuring several students involved with our classes. Reservations are highly recommended and can be made by calling: 253-572-2821 It's going to be a wonderful night of music to honor this auspicious occasion and I hope you can join us. ** Very special thanks to the TCC Foundation and The Swiss for partnering with us to help present this concert. **

Grit City Think & Drink | Life Finds A Way: Evolution in Cities

Talks/Lectures
Cities are the fastest growing ecosystem on Earth. Coincidentally, many wildlife face anthropogenic pressures they have not traditionally encountered in their evolutionary history. Many species faced with such selective pressures are detrimentally affected, whereas others thrive in urban environments. In this talk UW Tacoma's Christopher Schell will explore the emergence of a field – urban evolutionary biology – and how humans are the essential drivers and arbiters of this composite, yet wholly unique, ecosystem. In addition, Dr. Schell will detail the varied work beginning in the Tacoma, Olympia, and Seattle areas that blend research with community engagement in a novel way. Such research endeavors not only illuminate the processes by which wildlife respond to people, but also highlights the integral and far-reaching roles we play. Chris Schell is an Assistant Professor in the Science and Mathematics Division at UW Tacoma. His research asks the fundamental question: how are wildlife adapting to life in cities? He approaches this question using multiple techniques (e.g., animal behavior, endocrinology, camera trap analysis) to reframe what we consider “nature”. Chris is originally from Los Angeles, finished his undergrad in Psychology at Columbia University (2005), his doctoral work in Evolutionary Biology at the University of Chicago (2015), and most recently finished his postdoctoral work at Colorado State University in Fort Collins, CO. He primarily works on personality differences in coyotes, raccoons, and foxes – all of which have interesting biological and cultural touchpoints for people across the country. Hence, his work represents a bridge among seemingly disparate fields – social work, environmental justice, law, ecology, and psychology – to connect people and instill pride in the health and viability of our urban ecosystems.
