Project ideas

Project ideas are meant to help inspire student thinking about their own project. Students are in the driver seat of their research and are free to use any or none of the ideas shared by their mentors.

Community Engaged Art Project

Social practice, community engaged art, and new genre public art are all terms for a contemporary form of art that utilizes public participation and takes inspiration from social activism. In this project, you will identify and mobilize a community to create a collaborative work that responds to a social or political issue. Learn how to recruit participants, build alliances with community organizations, and facilitate a creative process involving multiple parties.
