ARTS 4080 - Art, Community and Technology

Through direct experience in the community, this course explores the complex roles and relationships of art, education and technology, students will develop a plan to work with a media arts center, community organization or school; final teams will produce real-world arts and education projects that ultimately will be realized as significant additions to their professional portfolio.  The projects can include a range from traditional arts practice to creative writing, creative IT models to community art and activism. We will examine diverse case studies, with special focus on the development and sustainability of a new local media arts center in Troy, the Sanctuary for Independent Media.  Students from a wide interdisciplinary range of studies are encouraged to enroll: a strong interest in how you can integrate creativity into your own knowledge base, and a desire to do field work in the community, are all that is required.

When Offered: Spring and Fall.

Credit Hours: 4
