Do it on the Lambuth Campus is a community wide affair. Faculty, staff, students and Jackson community members are leading the enactment of an exciting and varied selection of instructions. We invite community participation, so help us "do it" and see how you can participate.

Suzanne Lacy's do it instruction will be interpreted by participation in the International One Billion Rising Revolution. February through March 8 people around the world rise through dance to express joy and community and to celebrate the fact that together, violence can be defeated. In association with WRAP (Wo/Men's Resource and Rape Assistance Program) and led by the women of Pi Delta Mu, we invite you to join us March 2 and dance to Break the Chain at the Women's History Month opening ceremony!

Amalia Pica's Throw a Party celebrates St. Patrick's Day with a group of interactive do it instructions. We invite you to participate in enacting Etel Adnan's instant artist instructions spearheaded by Holley Wood. Make a wish at Yoko Ono's Wish Peace tree provided by Rebecca Cook, the Biology Club and the Garden Club. And you can help us fulfill Simone Forti's exhortation to think about climate change. We'll spur you on. Exhibits at the party will include community enactments of Hans-Peter Feldmann's Homework (or Do It Yourself), and Jiři Kolář's Museé Dominicil. Simryn Gill's Somewhere Between has been untaken by Cheryl Bowers' General Psychology class. Jeremy Tubbs' Music Industry students will entertain us and provide a surprising enactment of Hannah Weinberger's instruction. A few other surprises are in the works as well. And confetti! Paper confetti!
