Global Challenges and Change
Fisheries in a Changing Climate with Kathy Mills
Thursday, September 20th, 12:40 PM-2:00 PM
MUB Theater 2, UNH Durham Campus
Dr. Katherine Mills has studied ecosystem change and fish-ecosystem relationships in the Gulf of Maine and Northeast U.S. Shelf regions for over a decade. Much of Kathy’s research seeks to understand and inform management of fisheries as coupled social-ecological systems. Her research integrates physical, biological, social and economic information to link changes in the ecosystem and management system to societal outcomes. Mill’s talk will make a case that the Northeast region offers globally-applicable insights and lessons and will draw in some parallel examples and case studies from other regions of the world.

Mohamed Abozekry & Karkade
Wednesday, September 26, 6:30 PM-8:00 PM
West Claremont Center for Music + the Arts
@ Union Church
133 Old Church Road, Claremont, NH 03742
With his group, Karkadé, Mohamed Abozekry fuses Egypt’s popular and classical music traditions with virtuosity and mystique. This performance is a part of WCCMA’s fall season of live performances and education, we are committed to barriers free access to great music. Admission is by freewill donation. For this concert we suggest a donation of $20 Adults, $30 for families, or “pay what you can.” For more information visit wcc-ma.org.
Mohamed Abozekry has that rare gift of combining limitless virtuosity with an unbridled imagination. An oud master still in his mid-twenties, Abozerky’s ambitions – to musically interpret the world around him and de-exoticize his instrument – mark him as a polymath of forms. “I never move backwards, but in a circular motion and return to the place I started with more experience.”
With Karkadé, Abozekry evokes the hibiscus tea found everywhere in Cairo, and the eponymous French café at which this project was born. He convenes Egypt’s popular and classical music traditions, her Sufi calls, and secular poetry, to musically describe a path to an Arab world at peace with its history and turned towards the future.
Abozekry “has a stunning command of his instrument, as well as an open ear for other forms.” (PASTE MAGAZINE)
The presentation of Mohamed Abozekry & Karkadé is part of Center Stage, a public diplomacy initiative of the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, administered by the New England Foundation for the Arts in cooperation with the U.S. Regional Arts Organizations, with support from the Doris Duke Foundation for Islamic Art, and the Trust for Mutual Understanding.
