Light’s Out Philly: Up to one billion birds die each year across the United States when they collide with buildings and windows, attracted by their bright artificial lights at night. Now, Bird Safe Philly, a coalition of nonprofits, has joined forces with the City of Philadelphia and the building industry to help mitigate the problem in Philadelphia — situated in a migration corridor for birds along the Atlantic Flyway. Philadelphia is joining the national Lights Out initiative. This voluntary program involves turning off or blocking as many external and internal building lights as possible at night during migration seasons when birds are passing through the city by the millions. The first season of Lights Out Philly launches April 1, at the start of peak spring migration and runs through May 31, when most winged migrants will have passed through Philadelphia. In the fall, Lights Out Philly and peak migration will occur between Aug. 15 and Nov. 15 as birds travel south.

The Bryn Mawr College Dance Program: presents dancer and choreographer Nia Love and poet and critic Fred Moten in an embodied, textual, and theoretical dialogue at the intersections of their expansive work in abolition, fugitivity, and black radical traditions, hosted and curated by Assistant Professor in Dance Lela Aisha Jones March 25, 6-7:45 p.m. Described as a “glitch in the matrix” by Love, and in true “shoot the ish” form, these celebrated artists/scholars/critics/theorists will move through interdisciplinary call and response in dialogue and movement. Host and curator Jones notes, “This event aims to transport us to a time when folks still sit on multimodal porches to bask in the awe of collective brilliance that emerges from dismantling formalities and engaging in blackness uncaptured.” The Porch is part of the Nia Love: Centering Critical Blackness residency in the Bryn Mawr College Dance Program which received major support from the 360° Program and is in collaboration with the Performing Arts Series and the Mary Flexner Lectureship, which will present Moten in lectures on March 16 and March 23.
