WHAT IS UNDER THE NET? 
Hamline University's Wesley Center for Spirituality, Service and Social Justice has partnered with Homewood Studios and Imagine No Malaria, a national network of United Methodist churches and colleges, to work towards eliminating malaria in Africa by 2015. It is our hope that this show will help accomplish that goal by raising awareness, money, and education about those in malaria-stricken locations.

Whether through art or literature, each contributer will bring his or her own vision of what it means to imagine no malaria. The show features work from undergraduate students majoring in studio art and creative writing, graduate students enrolled in the Creative Writing Programs, and pieces by established Hamline alumni and community partners. It will be curated by local artist/author, Daniel Campbell, an alum of Hamline University.

Sometimes gritty and realistic, sometimes light and joyous, each piece carries with it the hope for a world without malaria.  Be sure to come to the show, invite your family, and spread the word!  This is a great, innovative way to show more innovative ways the United Methodist Church is helping children in Africa.
