Program Mission

The goal of Living Arts is to spur and support collaborative, creative work across disciplinary boundaries and to provide an open, playful environment that encourages students to generate and pursue new ideas.

Creative leaps thrive on two elements: deep knowledge and expertise in a subject area, and interaction with people whose knowledge and expertise are different from—but in some unexpected way complementary to—your own.

Intensive study in your major(s) takes care of the deep knowledge and expertise part; our hope is that living, playing, studying, and experimenting with your peers in Living Arts provides the catalytic interaction you need to rise to your own creative heights.

Join Living Arts and experience teaching and learning on the creative edge!
