Student Arts Coalition
In its initial stages of development, this Student Arts Coalition will advocate for the arts by acting as arts ambassadors and further encourage participation and artistic formation across campus, not just socially but academically. Through this added engagement, students will be promoting a stronger sense of community, creativity, and empathy.
The coalition will assist Boston College students to engage, create and experience forms of expression and contemplate lesser known narratives to bring awareness of the beauty in diversity. By actively listening to and seeking out a variety of voices within the Boston College community, students will learn more about previously unexplored artistic forms and subjects, and expand their understanding of what it means to create and theorise while simultaneously encouraging the acceptance of different kinds of expression in others.
In addition, this student group will act as the companion board to our Arts Council Executive Committee and discuss collaborative ideas and challenges facing student artists.
The Student Arts Coalition is in charge of developing, facilitating, and leading the Critical Conversations Series through the arts across campus. The inagural event was hosted by the Boston College Theatre Department and FACES* Council. A reading and discussion of the play "Baltimore" written by Kirsten Greenidge took place on February 25th in the Robsham Theater. All Critical Conversations Series events are free and open to the public.
* FACES, an anti-racist organization committed to educating the BC community on the issues of race, identity, and systems of power and privilege.
