The Division of the Arts is partnering with UW–Madison Latin American Caribbean and Iberian Studies program (LACIS), Overture Center for the Arts, Dane Arts, and Willie Ney Productions to introduce “Arts Together in Community,” an exciting new initiative between campus and community partners featuring artists, scholars, and community members engaged in dialogue, performance, and networking toward collaboration. Building upon the success of previous Arts Together events on campus, this partnership underscores the Division of the Arts’ commitment to extending outreach and collaboration with community partners.
The goal is to bring diverse groups together to share collaborative ideas and explore the role of the arts in our city and beyond. The Division of the Arts aims to foster new connections within the Madison arts community and connect emerging community and campus arts leaders.
“It’s a brilliant initiative by our new outreach and engagement coordinator, Kayla McGhee. It effectively brings campus and community together in organic ways and is designed to be the spark for so much more partnership around access to the arts,” says- Chris Walker, Director of the Division of the Arts.
The inaugural event will feature performances by Tito Medina as well as a discussion with Dr. Sara McKinnon, Faculty Director of LACIS. A reception with heavy appetizers will follow. The event is free to attend, and registration is required as space is limited.
