Event Details


Join UMKC alumni Barclay Martin and Rick Willoughby in the iX Theatre (1st floor) for a screening of the CFCA documentary film Rise and Dream, featuring Martin’s music and the story of 13 teenagers living in the Philippines. The teens accept a challenge to learn their own cultural instruments to perform on the biggest stage of their lives. The screening will be preceded by live music and followed by a question and answer session.

Co-sponsored by the Department of Communication Studies, UMKC Libraries, the College of Arts & Sciences Alumni Association, and CFCA.

Parking will be available on level 5 of the Cherry Street Parking Garage (located between 50th and 51st Streets and Oak and Cherry Streets -- see a map here: http://www.umkc.edu/maps/documents/volker_maps/UMKC_Volker_campus.pdf). Please note that parking anywhere else may result in ticketing.
