Artists in Residence
The Artist Residency program invites internationally acclaimed artists, designers and scholars to engage with the College of Arts, Media and Design. The residents work with the Northeastern faculty, students and staff and communities in the surrounding neighborhoods of Boston.
Critical Creative Practice Salon
The Critical Creative Practice Salon celebrates recently published works by faculty in the College of Arts, Media and Design. With a focus on interdisciplinary collaboration, the College drives creative thinking, action, and leadership in communications and the arts. Our faculty are committed to models of inquiry that emphasize both ‘thinking as making’ and ‘making as thinking.'
Food for Thought: A Faculty Lunchtime Colloquium
Food for Thought is a lunch & discussion series featuring the critical creative practices within the College of Arts, Media and Design. Our faculty, by probing at the frontiers of an array of creative disciplines, are committed to models of inquiry that emphasize both ‘thinking as making’ and ‘making as thinking.’ Critical creative practice refers to a constellation of contemporary cultural forms encompassing art, media, design, and architecture. This critical creative practice operates at the intersections (and interstices) of multiple discourses and methodologies in order to develop new tools for shaping public experience and the cultural sphere. Faculty curators of this series have been: Brooke Foucault Welles, Matthew McDonald, John Wihbey, Meryl Alper and Cammy Brothers.
Neighborhood Matters is a lunchtime series that celebrates the ways in which community groups have shaped the neighborhoods surrounding the Northeastern campus. This series is co-curated by the Northeastern Center for the Arts and the Archives and Special Collections at the Northeastern University Library.
Public Art Initiative
Northeastern’s Public Art Initiative was launched by President Joseph E. Aoun in 2014 in order to provide students, faculty and staff access to public artists' work from around the world. Artists are invited to treat the "campus as a canvas,” to create compelling site-specific artwork throughout campus for the entire Northeastern community to experience.
Tools & Technology for Creativity
Tools & Technology for Creativity is a series of workshops that provide diverse audiences with direct access to emerging technologies that have creative applications. These workshops are geared towards artists, musicians & media makers but open to all. Although focused on the creation of media, these workshops also encourage the creation of new media-making tools & technology.
