Interest meeting Nov. 6 for January's Artist as Citizen Conference
Student Engagement Office is excited to be working with ASTEP (Artists Striving to End Poverty) to offer a pilot regional Artist as Citizen Conference Jan. 4-7, 2018 at UNCSA. There will be an interest meeting at The What on Monday, Nov. 6 from 1:15-2 p.m. to meet Mary-Mitchell Campbell who is ASTEP's Executive Director, a Broadway Music Director and a UNCSA alumnae; along with current UNCSA students who attended the Artist as Citizen Conference at Juilliard this summer.
About the Conference:
Building on artistic excellence, activism, and artistic entrepreneurship, this conference offers an opportunity for students to explore art as something beyond a career. This 3-1/2 day conference is free for current UNCSA college and graduate students. Meals are included and early arrival to campus will be approved for residential students. A key component to this conference is about working closely amongst an interdisciplinary group of artists, so students from UNCSA attending the conference will be limited to 25 students (5 slots per art school). Students interested in applying, can email Lauren Iley-Spear at email@example.com for an application.
The Artist as Citizen Conference is presented by Artists Striving to End Poverty (ASTEP), a New York City-based non-profit that connects performing and visual artists with underserved youth in the US and around the world. Founded in 2006 by Broadway Musical Director Mary-Mitchell Campbell and some of her students at Juilliard, ASTEP was conceived to transform the lives of children using the most powerful tool they had – their art.
