Northern Virginia Community College (NOVA) will host its inaugural Spring Into NOVAarts Festival on March 30, 2019, at the Rachel M. Schlesinger Concert Hall and Arts Center located on the NOVA Alexandria Campus at 4915 East Campus Drive in Alexandria, Va. The event runs from 7 to 9:30 p.m. featuring the talented students of the NOVAarts program and student organizations, through a walking, progressive and all-encompassing performance showcase. The festivities include a different event in each part of the Schlesinger Center – music ensembles, a dance group, theatrical performances, live drawing events, a portrait station, student films, fine arts, interior designs and graphic designs. All of NOVA’s arts will be under one roof, for the first time in its history.
While libraries contain physical books that are repositories of human knowledge, human beings themselves represent a living library of experience. Each individual’s story contributes a chapter to our collective understanding of the issues that unite and, increasingly, divide every member of our global community. On Thursday, March 28, Northern Virginia Community College is bringing human “books” to the community by hosting the Human Library Project, an international event held on college campuses across the world. The program will take place from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the NOVA Alexandria Campus, Bisdorf Building, Room AA-158.
Kelly Persons was selected as the Executive Director of the Northern Virginia Community College Educational Foundation, where she is responsible for initiating, cultivating and maximizing philanthropic support for Northern Virginia Community College (NOVA). Persons reports to both the NOVA President and the Foundation’s Board of Directors.
