How to Get Involved

The Arts and Social Responsibility Project encourages and promotes student involvement, leadership and suggestions. Here are a few ways you can be part of this exciting initiative. Take a moment of your time to recommend a course, suggest a guest lecturer, or commit to working with us to develop a project that enriches the community. Opportunities must fit within the mission of ASRP.

SOME IDEAS TO GET YOU STARTED:

Suggest a speaker or artist

We seek to enrich the BC community by inspiring and educating through example. If you've heard relevant lectures by fascinating speakers or know of anyone who is an inspiration through their work in this area, contact us at asrp@bc.edu so we can look into bringing them and their work to campus.

Post an Event

If you'd like us to list and event that has already been planned, send us the event time, place, description, sponsors and contact information. Email asrp@bc.edu

Propose a Project

Any student, student group, staff or faculty with an interesting project idea that combines the arts and social responsibility may propose their idea to the ASRP to request support.  Support comes in three forms; financial, advertising and advising.  Send a brief description of your idea to asrp@bc.edu.  Be sure to include your contact information and the date of the event or completion of the project.  A designated student or faculty mentor will contact you to discuss the project in detail.  The proposal will be reviewed for quality, feasibility and suitability to our mission and then the amount and type of support will be determined.  The project idea must be initiated at least 8 weeks in advance of completion and applications will only be accepted from the first day of class in the fall semester to the last day of class in the spring semester.  Past projects have included social justice murals, guest lecturers & performance groups, theatrical productions, sculpture, documentary films and more.  Be creative with your ideas. 

Film a Social Justice Documentary

The Jacques Salmanowitz Program for Moral Courage in Film is devoted to encouraging the production of social justice films concerned with acts of moral courage, providing role models for youth worldwide. The Salmanowitz Program offers assistance to BC students for specific film projects that meet this criteria. More information can be acquired through the Fine Arts Department/Film Studies Program.

Serve on the Student Board of Advisors

The ASRP Student Board works with student projects and is responsible for connecting other BC students and student groups with the  work. We need students to network, market our events, update the website, photograph and record events and work with our team.   Interested?   Email asrp@bc.edu and we will set up a time to talk.
