All are invited to watch and experience the creative talents of young filmmakers and artists at a film festival and art reception hosted by the Office of Mental Health Promotion (OMHP), within the URMC Department of Psychiatry. The community-partnered media education program, Raising 100,000 Voices, showcases 15 films produced by local youth.


The films provide a personal and realistic glimpse of what it’s like growing up in Rochester, and tackle complex social issues such as homelessness among LGBT youth, and human trafficking. There are also multiple films focused on education to inform both teachers and students how to be successful inside and outside the classroom. This is the first year that the project has been independently supported and coordinated by the OMHP (it was previously overseen in partnership with WXXI), which provided technical and creative guidance to the students. Collaborating organizations this year include Rochester City School District School 39, Monroe County Youth on the Move, the Dazzle School of Visual and Performing Arts, and Oswego BOCES. To date, over 40 local organizations have participated, creating more than 250 films.

The Office of Mental Health Promotion will host a reception at the Bridge Art Gallery following the film fest. For questions, contact omhpromotion@gmail.com or visit the Bridge Art Gallery’s Facebook page.

Diversity Series Seminar: Cultural Humility http://www.rochester.edu/diversity/eventscalendar?event&id=1066636 http://www.rochester.edu/diversity/eventscalendar?event&id=1066636 Natapow Room 1-9545 Medical Center

Kristin Hocker, organizational development specialist in Human Resources, will give a talk and presentation on cultural humility. 

Defined as a lifelong process of self-reflection and self-critique, cultural humility is a philosophy that empowers individuals to effectively engage in interpersonal relationships that are dynamically diverse and mutually respectful. Cultural humility provides a framework for individuals to increase their understanding of the significant funds of knowledge that exist within each person’s cultural background. By deepening their cultural humility, individuals are then able to recognize and re-address power imbalances that exist within their immediate social and organizational structures.

At the conclusion of this session, you will:

    -Define cultural humility and its core tenets.

    -Discuss the application of cultural humility to functioning in diverse workspaces.

    -Identify ways to apply cultural humility in one’s own practice.

To register for this workshop, contact Grace Fuller.
