Screen Time, a live virtual talk show airing through Zoom. The monthly program, hosted by Englert’s events director, Jessica Egli, invites teachers, artists, educational and artistic administrators, students, parents, and any other curious community member to come together to discuss the current challenges around reimagining our work for the virtual world and the execution of that work. Each episode will feature two or three local professionals who will share their stories of hardship and triumph. The program will seek to build bridges between individuals and institutions that can benefit from developing new relationships or strengthening existing ones in an effort to deepen the impact of Iowa City’s online arts education opportunities for all.

McGuirk currently teaches at the University of Iowa Magid Center for Undergraduate Writing. She holds an MFA in poetry from the Iowa Writers' Workshop and a BA in English and Film Studies from the University of Notre Dame. McGuirk works at the Iowa City Bike Library and performs with the I.C. Kings drag troupe as Wiley Guyote.

Mirage a 24 year old drag artist originally from New York, now living and creating in Iowa City. The best way she can think to describe herself is a glamorous doofus. She's constantly straddling the line between tackiness and glamour always making sure to leave room for silliness.  Not Campy, not comedy, not high fashion, but somewhere in the middle of it all.

Garik Himebaugh is the founder of Eco-Stylist, the go-to marketplace for stylish and sustainable clothes. He got hooked on sustainable fashion after a chance meeting with the founder of an ethical brand, which then lead him down a path of countless hours of research into how un-sustainable the fashion industry is. Garik emerged from all this research with a simple question: “can I put together stylish outfits with only sustainable brands?” Once he knew that he could, he wanted to help others dress like they give a damn—and Eco-Stylist was born! Garik is also an international speaker on sustainable fashion. He has an MBA from University of Iowa and he loves coffee, climbing, and clothes.
