DANC 004. Arts in Action
(Cross-listed as MUSI 006 )
What is art and what constitutes social change? The course will explore these questions in two ways: First, we will look at the interconnections between culture, art, and community through rigorous intellectual inquiry by orienting students to the history of the field through selected readings. Second, we will engage in situated experiential learning with local and international arts communities. This course aims to bring together students with an interest in investigating and investing in social change work through the arts. Class requirements include: Readings, video viewing and discussions, volunteering in community events, keeping a regular journal, and doing a final project based on the readings, interviews, and field experiences.
This course is open to all students. This course fulfills a prerequisite requirement for dance majors and minors.
