Call For Work: Learning in the World Art Exhibit

Students who have participated in a LITW program are encouraged to submit related art work by April 22
by Jenny Barker

A team comprised of members of the the Tang Institute's Learning in the World (LITW) and  Global Ambassadors programs is planning to work with students and faculty to design an art exhibit in Spring 2018 to share and showcase their LITW experiences (from all programs and all past years). Submissions of various kinds are welcome.

The hope is to:

  • Feature work from each of the Learning in the World programs (from both students, and faculty members)
  • Exhibit a variety of modes and mediums, including, but not limited to: photography, video, drawing, music, creative writing/poetry, choreography, mixed media/collage, collaborative creations

With thanks to the Theater and Dance Department, the exhibit is slated to take place in the Steinbach Lobby of George Washington Hall, from April 25 through May 14.

Prompt: Global Citizenship and Global Imagination

With an eye toward highlighting a key theme that we hope student curators will respond to, sharpen, reimagine, and probe, we offer the following prompt:
 
“Learning in the World programming hopes to give students the skills they need to become global citizens by instilling in them an understanding of people's shared humanity, a drive to promote social change, and capabilities in leadership and cross-cultural competency. Being in a new geography, in a new experience, while encountering diversity and multiculturalism might bring a more profound understanding of self. Did global citizenship play a role in your LITW experience? Were you influenced by new cultures, new pathways, new experiences, and new challenges? Did you capture either your own experience or the experience of others in this new environment? Did you create art, reflect in journals, or capture a global citizenship moment or experience in a photograph? We invite you to share them with us!”

Submissions

The deadline for submissions is Sunday, April 22. Digital copies can be send to Carmen Muñoz Fernández, director of Learning in the World. Art  pieces can be dropped off at the Tang Institute, Pearson C, before April 22.  

Please include the following:

1.Title of your art piece
2.Your name
3.Learning in the World Program 
4.Time and place where artwork was created
