Why the Arts? Lessons from the Pandemic
April 20, 2022 @ 2:00 pm
Hybrid / CHASS Interdisciplinary South, Room 1111
A roundtable discussion as we transition “back” to opening venues for the arts on campus, in the professional world, and in arts education. What does it mean to return to working in-person after such a long period of being away? What have we gained? What have we lost? How do hybrid modalities present opportunities for theatre spaces, museums, music, art and dance spaces to rethink how we make, share and educate in the arts?
