While our grandparents may quietly complain about how different kids these days are from kids back in the day, we don’t expect to hear any complaints from our grandparents about the Chicago-based band Kids These Days, who the Gargoyle and Kuumba TV will bring to campus on Wednesday, Feb. 1.
Last year, the entire campus came together to raise at least $9,000 for Haiti after an earthquake killed 300,000. These efforts stand in contrast to the student effort after devastating flooding in Pakistan since July.
Kuumba.tv, launched this past Saturday, hopes to change the way we view the artistic achievements of those who, for all we know, could be sitting right next to us. Kuumba, Swahili for “creativity,” provides a platform for people within the Washington University community to showcase their creative outlets, whatever they may be.
