The Alliance for the Arts in Research Universities “Emerging Creatives Student Summit” brings together students interested in the arts, crossing disciplinary boundaries, and developing collaborative projects.
The 2017 Student Summit will be hosted by the University of Florida on February 8-11, 2017 in Gainesville, Florida.
This year’s theme is WATER: New Directions Through Arts and Science. No community on this planet is without it’s water-based challenges. Water-centric grand challenges are many, ranging from access and social justice issues in local and global contexts, to environmental degradation, toxicological challenges, and saltwater incursion into freshwater, to sea level rise.
Undergraduate and graduate students in any and all fields are welcome, particularly those that care about and have a deep interest in water and the environment. We especially encourage student research teams from biology, ecology, and related fields, as well as artists/designers, to apply.
Free and open to registered graduate and undergraduate students at University of Florida. Apply now to participate - application Deadline: December 9, 2016.
