Announcing the School of Drama’s 2019-2020 season!drama

“We think of our stages as laboratories where students practice what they are learning in our classrooms. It is essential for their artistic growth to have a nurturing environment where they can experiment, risk, explore, and test themselves and their impact on audiences. We are fortunate to have audiences that wonderfully support our students in this endeavor. We aim to have a diverse range of styles, time periods, theatrical genres, and characters in our season because it gives our students a vast breadth of experiences while they are here.

But also, our season must be relevant, both to our audiences and to our students. If it’s not relevant, we are failing to teach our most important lesson, which is that theatre can and should be in conversation with the world around it—that theatre can change the world.” – Geoff Korf, Associate Director, UW School of Drama

Inspiring arts exploration: ArtsUW website redesigned with students in mind

“We want the arts to be part of the DNA of every student’s experience.” That bold vision, offered by Catherine Cole, divisional dean for the arts in the UW College of Arts and Sciences, is getting a boost this month with the launch of an expanded ArtsUW website designed with students in mind. The website highlights an array of opportunities for arts exploration on campus, from upcoming performances and exhibits to courses in the arts. Special one-time offerings, such as free workshops with renowned visiting artists, are also featured. For those wanting to dive deeper, the site provides information about majors and minors in the Arts Division. Learn more about the vision behind ArtsUW and explore the new website.
