The Artist in the Community: Civic Engagement and Collaborative Dancemaking

ENVS 376
Spring 2023
Section: 01  
Crosslisting: DANC 376, THEA 376
Course Cluster and Certificates: Community-Engaged Learning, Service Learning

Through both theoretical analysis and practical application, students will grow their understanding of community-based performance and collaborative art-making. Grounded in readings and seminar discussions about the practice and process of community-based art, students will apply their learning through community-engaged research, job shadowing and interviewing campus employees, and developing creative projects with partnering campus staff. Through direct practice, students in the course will explore how collaborative performance can address local issues, spark community dialogue, and encourage civic participation--whether on a college campus, in a neighborhood or across a city.

Class meetings will take place virtually; student research and project development will be conducted in person. Note: This course includes a Spring Break travel opportunity to work on a Forklift Danceworks project. Details on travel logistics to come.
