Fashion, music, entertainment, advertising, sports, news, social media, technology, food. Pop culture matters to you. But how does pop culture impact politics, and vice versa? Join STATIC as we present The Intersection of Pop Culture & Politics: An Evening with Mike Muse, live in the HUB Ohio Room, on Thursday, September 27th. This is a free event. No tickets are required for entry. However, seating is limited to the first 400 people, so be sure to arrive early enough to claim a seat! Doors for the event will open at 7:00 p.m. and the show will begin shortly thereafter. Mike will stay for a meet-and-greet with the audience after the event concludes. Straight from SiriusXM and TEDx Talks, Mike Muse, a former industrial engineer and co-founder of Muse Recordings record label, explores the intersection of pop culture and politics, attempting to dissect where we are as a nation, how we got here, and where we can possibly go. Most profoundly, he engages with college students to more meaningfully translate politics through lenses that you understand and care about: namely, pop culture. Muse believes that our current generation of college students are poised to change the nation through democracy. Click here to check out Muse’s website. Members of the #IUPVotes initiative will also be on site to help interested students register for the upcoming midterm elections in November! For more information, visit the STATIC website or Twitter page.
