New collaboration will enhance arts education outreach
Kennesaw State University’s College of the Arts has signed a memorandum of understanding with the ArtsBridge Foundation outlining a new collaborative effort to create programs that will enhance arts education opportunities for the region’s students.
“The College of the Arts is looking forward to this partnership and its potential to impact the arts,” said Patty Poulter, dean of the college. “Our faculty will bring ideas and expertise to enhance ArtsBridge programming to include new master classes, auditioning and other technical programs to support students’ interests in dance, music, theater and the visual arts.”
College of the Arts students will also be able to intern with the Foundation and the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre. The Foundation is the arts education outreach arm of the Centre. Natalie Barrow, director of arts education and community outreach for the Foundation, will oversee the internship project.
“We are excited about this new strategic project which will expand the relationship we already have with KSU’s College of the Arts,” said Pam Hubby, director of development, ArtsBridge Foundation. “For five years they have been an anchor in our ArtsBridge Field Trip Season, presenting ‘Synergy,’ a multi-disciplined arts montage showcasing the talented students and faculty in the College of the Arts.”
Through this collaboration, ArtsBridge and Kennesaw State will expand arts education and talent development opportunities that will benefit not only high school and college students, but also the broader community.
New programs resulting from this partnership will soon be announced as part of ArtsBridge’s 2014-2015 season.
