2022 Emerging Creatives Student Summit

Opportunity: 2022 Emerging Creatives Student Summit

As a member institution of the Alliance for the Arts in Research Universities (a2ru), UGA may select two student representatives. Please contact mark.callahan@uga.edu for more information about how to participate.

a2ru is now accepting student teams from member institutions to participate in the 2022 Emerging Creatives Student Summit, an intensive interdisciplinary working summit with experts and fellow students from across the country. Student teams must consist of one student from an arts-based discipline and one student from a non-arts-based discipline.

The event, which will be co-sponsored by two leading companies from the private sector, Steelcase Learning and CannonDesign, in partnership with a2ru founding partner institution Virginia Tech, will take place March 9-11 in Washington, D.C. at Steelcase’s WorkLife Center. During the summit, students will work in interdisciplinary teams to create collaborative projects that explore the theme of “Learning in Liminal Spaces: Transformative Visions for the 21st Century.” Students will learn collaboration techniques and receive expert guidance as they design and develop their shared projects.

There is no fee to attend the summit and some meals will be provided as part of the Summit experience. Students or their institutions will be responsible for travel and board. Limited number of student travel grants and a2ru scholar awards are available to eligible institutions; please contact a member of your institution’s a2ru contact team for more details.
