When most Walter Cronkite students want a quick meeting spot with their friends, the first thing they think of is a coffee shop.
On February 26, 2014, the same experience will greet them at school as NLGJA ASU hosts the first-ever Cronkite Coffee House.
Cronkite Coffee House is a live concert and art gallery event in the Walter Cronkite School’s First Amendment Forum, open to the public and aimed to create an artistic and cultural experience for ASU students in downtown Phoenix.
Local musicians will perform acoustic sets during the event and downtown artists will present their work as part of the Cronkite Coffee House Art Exhibit. Coffee and cookies will be provided by a downtown favorite hot spot, Jobot Coffee.
The event is hosted by the National Lesbian and Gay Journalism Association at Arizona State University, a student group geared toward empowering LGBTQIA students at the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication.
Arts & Culture plays a major role in the LGBTQIA community as a means of free expression and acceptance. Uniting students with music and art will encourage empowerment for ASU students and locals.
The event is sponsored by Walter Cronkite College Council.
