This innovative abroad program will use the cities of Rome, Florence and Venice as labs for active and engaged learning. The young artists and designers will visit important cultural and historical sites, will engage with local creatives, and will attend the oldest world survey of contemporary art in the world, the Venice Biennale.
We will use the framework of tourism to ask students to consider what it means to be abroad, to be home and their relationships with places. Throughout our travels, students will be introduced to people who will inspire complex understanding of Italian history and contemporary life. Students will refine their understanding of the relationship between self and place as they develop a greater understanding of their own artistic processes. Students will grow in their appreciation of diversity and will walk away with new perspectives.
