Option 1: College, Self, and Community

The focus of my project will either be about my perspective as Vice-President of a student group on campus, Feed Minneapolis, or as a theatre student. I am thinking about sharing my experiences about absorbing theatre this semester. I would like to gather information for this digital story by either participating in my student group or seeing several productions and perhaps interviewing actors and background production managers.

Some initial auto-ethnography questions I have about my community engagement(s) are why I, as a half-white female college student, feel compelled to be part of Feed Minneapolis? What impact do I think I can make? Or, how am I personally influenced by certain theatrical productions? What thoughts arise in my head during and after viewing these productions and why? Are they because I’m female, because I’m white, or not white? What’s the reason?
