CONCENTRATION IN CREATIVE INQUIRY, INTERDISCIPLINARY ARTS

We welcome artists trained or practicing in single or multiple disciplines ready to do the following:

Place their own art work at the center of a creative inquiry, which allows them to claim an arts heritage and reflect on the interrelationship between personal values and aesthetic choices

Explore how artists can collaborate with and feed each other across disciplines

Experiment with inter-arts and cross-disciplinary approaches to art-making

Learn to contextualize their art and investigate how it can reflect or aid social change by transgressing or breaking through personal and cultural barriers

Acquire additional skills and add a credential to expand their job options or open up new professional opportunities
