Bogad Recognized by U.S. Dept. of Arts and Culture
Professor Larry Bogad, Department of Theatre and Dance chair, has been recognized by the U.S. Department of Arts and Culture as one of the 25 creative practitioners who will deepen and support the building of our People’s WPA platform.
The People’s WPA is a storytelling project with the goal of convincing policymakers to invest in arts, culture, and newly imagined sectors of labor critical to our healing and survival. Over the course of the next 6 months, these stellar individuals and collectives will help give life to our ideas. Together we will lift up the many vital ways in which community-based artists and cultural workers are steadfastly working to repair society and move us into a more sustainable and enriching future.
The U.S. Department of Arts and Culture is a people-powered department, harnessing art and culture to cultivate empathy, equity, and social imagination. Arts and Culture’s mission is to create a just and welcoming world, using social imagination to envision and enact change.
