Students at Northwest Campus get a chance to show off their creativity this week through the workings of the Creative VOICE Symposium. Sponsored by the NW Department of Humanities and Philosophy, Student Activities, the Dance Department, the Cornerstone Honors Program, and the Humanities division, this free gathering gives students, faculty, and staff a chance to release their inner artists and be heard.
Participants will get the opportunity to:
- Initiate conversations anchored in scholarship and creativity;
- Create the experience of being heard the way they intend to be heard;
- Network with their peers, faculty and staff, and members of the community;
- Engage in interdisciplinary, multicultural, and experiential learning;
- Appreciate other world views and perspectives through the exchange of creative ideas.
Those wishing to join in the festivities should make a reservation with Kim Jackson at 817-515-7190. Activities run from Monday, Nov. 12 through Thursday, Nov. 15.
VOICE , which stands for “visions that open and inspire creativity and excitement”, began on June 30, 2009, with only 15 students from Kim Jackson’s HUMA 1301 class. Since then, the yearly program has taken off and allowed students to present at other conferences, including the National American Cultural Association/Popular Culture Association Conference and the Southwestern Regional Conference of Community College Humanities Association Conference.
