Arts and Technology
The Arts and Technology Initiative seeks to transform teaching and learning across the arts curriculum — music, theater, art, film, architecture, dance — and with other disciplines to prepare students for a rapidly changing, globally connected 21st-century world. In particular, the initiative seeks to elevate and sustain a powerful maker culture for interdisciplinary learning and innovation. A major activity and component of the initiative is the MEDIAL Project, which is supported by a generous grant from the Sherman Fairchild Foundation. The funds go toward the renovation and improvement of several art-making facilities, the acquisition of new equipment, and microgrants to support student experimentation through independent projects.
