Come learn about Seattle U's MFA in Arts Leadership Program! You will hear where many of our alumni have gone on to work after earning their degree from this program, as well as what you'll be studying in your two years in the program, particularly with regard to the graduate management practicum experience. You'll also have an opportunity to ask questions of the program director, Kevin Maifeld.
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.
