Nobel Peace Prize Forum

submitted by

The Nobel Peace Prize Forum is seeking students who can act as hosts for visiting students in the Fall of 2017. Students are asked to step forward as hosts to other college and university students who will be visiting the Twin Cities for the Forum from the 14th-16th of September.
If you know you are living on campus next Fall, then you would make a perfect host! Anderson, Luther, and Mortensen would make great spaces for visiting students to stay, but any on campus living area would be fantastic. We are looking for students who would be willing to help out and provide space for 2-3 nights.

As a host you will have the opportunity to get to know a student outside of Augsburg. It is a great experience that allows you to meet some new faces and contribute to the college’s rich academic community. By being a host you can get to know a student from another college or university and get to know more about other colleges and how they run. You will be the student’s best introduction to the city! If you want to gain a new connection and meet students from other colleges/universities, then this is perfect for you!

If you would like to be a student host, or have any questions about hosting please email or call!

Cost: Free
Location: The Cedar’s Community Plaza, located to the right of The Cedar’s doors.

Local Somali percussionist Harbi will debut his work “Heartbeat of Durbaanka,” a new work funded by a grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board Cultural Community Partnership program.

Most recently, Harbi has been the percussionist for five residencies as part of The Cedar Cultural Center’s Midnimo program. Launched in 2014, Midnimo consists of multi-week residencies with Somali musicians from around the world that include public concerts and artist-led workshops, discussions, and activities throughout the state.


Rahmo Rose Band, a group featuring The Cedar’s Somali Artist-in-Residence Rahmo Rose, performs in collaboration with Augsburg College’s Small Jazz Ensemble. The group was created as part of The Cedar’s most recent Midnimo residency, where they opened for London-based Somali qaarami singer Nimco Yasisn in Minneapolis, Mankato, and St. Cloud. They’ll perform for a fourth time on The Cedar’s Community Plaza.

Finnish Designed Mid-Century Stack Stools for Sale

submitted by

Hey, you mid-century Scandinavian design-loving fool, check it out: I’m selling a set of four stack stools designed by the famous Alvar Aalto. You know, that Finnish dude who was an architect and designer who pioneered bentwood design ahead of the times and that Ikea tries poorly to mimic. The stools sport Aalto’s patented 6-kerf design.

These stools were imported by Scandicrafts of Dobbs Ferry, New York. Likely from the 1940s or so, they show wear appropriate to their age. All the veneer is in place. I’m asking $2,100 for the set. Learn more at the link below.
