Through applied research methods, each project is a culmination of a student’s inquiry into an arts field of practice. This includes projects rooted in cultural equity, creative placemaking, teaching artist pedagogy, audience and field analysis, strategic business plans, resistance activism, youth engagement and education, community storytelling and journalism, digital design and influence, and formation of new artistic works and spaces. This event is free and open to the public.
