IP Guest Critiques 1205 2

The Uni­ver­sity of Michigan’s Arts Ini­tia­tive con­tin­ues to move for­ward explor­ing new mod­els for stu­dents, fac­ulty and staff to work col­lab­o­ra­tively within the arts and across dis­ci­plines to share knowl­edge resources with a bold new set of demon­stra­tion projects set to launch this fall.

The projects were selected by the initiative’s work­ing group, which hopes they will enable exper­i­men­tal ways of think­ing about the role of the arts for the U‑M com­mu­nity and the South­east Michi­gan region, and to serve as exem­plars for the Arts Initiative’s Startup Phase, a three-year period of explo­ration to deter­mine long-term goals as the ini­tia­tive enters its sec­ond year.

The projects approved for the Arts Initiative’s Startup Phase rec­og­nize the crit­i­cal role that artists and design­ers play in our research uni­ver­sity set­ting and our world,” said Guna Nadara­jan, dean of the Penny W. Stamps School of Art & Design and a mem­ber of the Arts Ini­tia­tive Work­ing Group. 

All of them reflect a strong com­mit­ment to social jus­tice and com­mu­nity impact as well as con­nec­tions and syn­er­gies with mul­ti­ple dis­ci­plines in the university.”
