Alexandra Pere | The Daily Wildcat Centennial Hall was built in 1937 and was originally named, The Main Auditorium, before it’s renovation in 1985. It hosts a wide variety of performing arts including musicals, plays, comedians, ballets, and more!

The University of Arizona Consortium on Gender-Based Violence will be hosting a new Speaker Series event, featuring two talks on Sept. 19 and Oct. 30. 

Activist, professor and author Lacy M. Johnson will lead the first talk, reading a section from her new book, “The Reckonings,” and hold a Q&A session. There will be a book signing immediately after the event.

The event will take place in the Holsclaw Hall in the Fred Fox School of Music at 5:30 p.m. The tickets to Johnson’s talk are free; however, they must be reserved on eventbrite.com

The second event will feature Tarana Burke, founder of the #MeToo Movement. This event is a less formal “fireside chat,” according to the event's website. It is meant to be a discussion about how the movement has impacted thousands of women’s lives all over the world.
