Manifest Preview 2011

By Cristina Aguirre

Columbia’s Office of Student Affairs, in coordination with the Arts, Entertainment and Media Management Department, presented a sample of what student work will be showcased at Manifest 2011 on May 13. Four musical acts—three bands and a DJ—took the stage at the 1104 Center, 1104 S. Wabash Ave., with hopes of garnering excitement for Columbia’s annual urban arts festival. A class taught by Mecca Perry, who is associated with concert and festival promotion and internship management in the AEMM Department, was responsible for organizing the preview. They held volunteer booths, where students can volunteer their time for the festival, hack your t-shirt station, and food.
