Art Schools Collaborative
The Art Schools Collaborative is a four-day gathering of seventy-five students from approximately ten art schools along the eastern seaboard and Canada. Designed for students to investigate the most current ideas surrounding contemporary craft and visual culture, students actively engage with peers from diverse backgrounds and educational institutions.
Creative leaders from diverse backgrounds present lectures , round table discussions and facilitated studio workshops that are collaborative in nature and designed to promote critical thinking and experimentation. Students and faculty all present talks on their work and build an expanded peer network with one another.
Participating schools have included: Massachusetts College of Art, SUNY New Paltz, Rhode Island School of Design, School for American Crafts at the Rochester Institute of Technology, Syracuse University, Teachers College Columbia University, University of the Arts, University of Massachusetts-Dartmouth, The Maine College of Art, and the Tyler School of Art.
