MFA in Social and Environmental Arts Practice

Institution: Prescott College

Description: The MFA in Social and Environmental Arts Practice focuses on the intersection of art and activism. Specifically, it explores art in social change and the application of art as a change agent. The Faculty Director of our MFA degree is artist, organizer, educator, and popular public speaker, Patrisse Cullors, Los Angeles native and Co-Founder of Black Lives Matter Global Network and Founder of grassroots Los Angeles based organization Dignity and Power Now. Unlike traditional MFA programs in which students concentrate on a specific medium, form, or discipline, the interdisciplinary MFA in Social and Environmental Arts Practice centers concept, purpose and intentional engagement with community over specific disciplines or media. A student entering into the interdisciplinary MFA in Social and Environmental Arts Practice might combine multiple disciplines and media, or work within a single discipline or media focused within the frame of social practice theory.
