No where else in the world can you find the range of disciplines in one school. Over the last 50 years as we forged new programs, built our home in New York and expanded to our global academic centers, institutes emerged. Each are built with shared values, common goals, and a priority for putting students first. The result – a place where artists and scholars create the future.
Visiting students and non-majors are invited to take classes during January Term, Spring at Tisch, and Summer. Earn credits towards your major or minor, build your résumé with an internship, or take classes to change careers. Come be inspired by New York City and our international sites.
The Office of Special Programs at Tisch School of the Arts provides access to the arts. Whether you’re an NYU or visiting college student, high school student or working professional, we provide you with the introductory exposure to the performing or cinematic arts and the advanced-level training to grow your craft.
As teaching and training artists, how do we engage with creative works that explore issues of race and may also have personal triggers that offend? Many plays and musicals investigate racial themes that can affect us deeply. Is it better to remove these plays from our classrooms and performance? Can we illicit change through the stories we tell? How do we in professional training within an institution of learning investigate and interrogate these artistic works as a powerful tool to educate?
Please join Tisch Drama Chair Rubén Polendo, Associate Chair Michael McElroy, and special guest Stefanie A. Jones for a conversation about navigating race in artistic works.
Pizza and soft drinks will be provided.
Hosted throughout the semester, Community Call-In invites the Tisch Drama community into conversation about timely issues, welcoming many voices and viewpoints.
