ACME Sessions

ACME Sessions

 

Transporting the UMFA into the community, ACME Sessions are a series of public meetups where participants can imagine and articulate new models of education and community engagement through hands-on activities and dialogue. Bimonthly Sessions are held at Salt Lake City Public Library branches and bring together Salt Lake City’s most creative, inventive, and cross-disciplinary minds to explore relevant topics and issues within society. To learn more about ACME Sessions and read a recap report of the first year, click here
