An online intensive for changemakers

Where you have permission to reframe the way you look at the world, your art practice, and the way you collaborate. Engage in courses and practices that help you create a future you’re excited about—all while making distinctive work for your portfolio.

Respond critically to world
events and uncertainty

Challenge yourself through a series of prompts, where you’ll learn to research, discover new materials, and explore and develop new work that reflects issues around creativity during times of distress.

Follow a flexible schedule that
works for your life

Through a mix of live and recorded video sessions using Zoom and our learning management system, you will share work in progress, present projects and ideas, and connect with instructors one-on-one and in small groups.
