Wabash College’s Digital Arts and Human Values initiative seeks to advance our understanding of how digital media and its congruent culture can reflect and shape our values constructively for the enrichment of society.
The project is a 3-year initiative spearheaded by Theater, Music, and Art with a clear imperative to collaborate deeply with faculty and students across the curriculum. Year 1 will be led by Theater, focusing on interactive media; Year 2: Art; Year 3: Music
Three artists-in-residence (one for each year of the project) will work with students and faculty on original projects designed to address “vital human issues or questions affecting our community.” Artists will reside with us for one semester, 6 weeks on campus, the remainder as a digital residency continuing his/her work with students and faculty. Artist will foster relationships among students/faculty/staff to explore interdisciplinary activities that may be unleashed or strengthened by digital media.
