Innovators and intellectuals from around the world converge to push the possibilities of cultural production.

We offer an intimate, intensive one-year M.A. in Arts Politics, and an undergraduate minor. Ours is a space of transition, action and reflection, a pivot point for people and practices that cannot be contained by a single discipline, methodology or motivation. Courses examine histories of political frameworks in the arts, as well as contemporary strategies for activism and advocacy. We rigorously evolve the interplay between theory and practice, together asking, “How do we make the world anew?” Our graduates go on to work as artists and scholars, curators and community organizers, arts administrators, educators and cultural innovators — ever connected to the pulse of social justice.
