Dear Friends of The Arts Initiative,
We are moving forward into the next 5 years and gaining momentum as we welcome our new Deputy Director of Exhibitions and Curatorial Practice, Merijn van der Heijden, and our temporary staffing coordinator, Matthew Yde. As we gathered content for our 5 year anniversary report, we spoke with dozens of past students and staff who graced our doorsteps. We realized how blessed we are to be able to provide a place where they learned, exhibited, performed, or worked.
It is because of your patronage, interest, and support that we are able to thrive. The Arts Initiative has matured through our Royal Shakespeare Company Partnership, the establishment of the Town and Gown Advisory Committee for the Arts, and our alliances with arts organizations and businesses around the city. We hope to see you at the next event, exhibition, or performance at Urban Arts Space, on campus, and around town.
Our best wishes in the upcoming year,
Director - Urban Arts Space
Associate Dean of Arts and Humanities, Executive Director of The Arts Initiative, & Professor of Dance
