Inclusion, Belonging and Community Building Through the Arts

After planning the momentous visit of Anna Deavere Smith in May of 2019,  the Arts working group continued to build on their efforts to use  storytelling to build community, and fostering more inclusive participation in the Arts at Vassar.

Mission Statement

Our group wants to mount arts events and develop projects that encompass opposites in dynamic ways: push and pull. We seek projects/events to which everyone can relate and find something of value in their own style. We aim to be a catalyst for many types of interaction and expression. We will play with alternative modes and shared mysteries in the search for answers that suit each person.

  • Playful rigor
  • Structured spontaneity
  • Visionary practicality
  • Unbounded boundaries
  • Conventional disruption
