An Artist Roundtable and Reception

In that house, one shifts away from the self toward another—a partner. Collaboration unites beliefs and values for the purpose of achieving something greater, uniting the efforts of each of the individuals

StarWound in Concert, October 24
Join the Experience UWF Downtown Lecture Series on October 24 as the Athens, Greece -based, Angophone band StarWound presents “Interiors.”
The show’s theme, “Interiors,” grew out of the isolation spawned during the COVID-19 pandemic. The theme has also expanded thematically to include a range of connotations related to “interiors.”
Through their “rock cabaret” style, StarWound presents a philosophical and social reflection on the current human state. In the spirit of collaboration, the band bases their lyrical compositions off of modern-day poetic works.
StarWound has ranked amongst 150 bands at the “YourBand” contest of the National Greek Radio and TV Company.
The October 24th show will include poetic collaborations with UWF faculty and students, as well as work from previous collaborations on StarWound’s tour of U.S. universities.
Join us on October 24, 6:30 p.m. for a night of poetic reflections and musical compositions. The event will be held at the REX Theatre, 18 N. Palafox St., Pensacola. Doors open at 6 p.m. and light refreshments will be available. The event is free and open to the public. However, tickets are required and can be secured at Eventbrite.
This installment is presented and sponsored by the UWF College of Arts, Social Sciences and Humanities in partnership with the UWF Department of English.
