We are pleased to announce the first details of our 2018 festival, CREATIVE IMPERATIVES: REVOLUTIONS -  Expression, Innovation and Change.

The 2018 festival will explore art and communication in a changing society and how technology and innovation have advanced the way we explore our world.  Campus sessions and featured guests will highlight current trends and techniques and their interplay with the past and future of creative expression.

Please join us on Monday February 26 and Tuesday February 27 for an exciting series of presentations, performances, workshops, lectures, and discussions with faculty, staff and students.
