Portable Life Museum explores art worlds and intersectionalities of personal and cultural identity through creative journaling, discussions around course readings, and developing a body of work that moves you forward in your academic and personal writing, reflective and critical analysis skills, and tools for creative process and research.
College Connections Faculty: Julie Voelker-Morris
My instructional practice focuses on undergraduates in the Arts & Administration program, the Comics & Cartoon Studies minor, and the FIG Program. In my courses, students encounter a wide range of creative visual and performative works that assist in making real, visible, and of continuing significance the concerns around managing arts and culture. Through analysis of arts and creative production methods as well as using tools of self-reflection, students in my classes are asked to examine their personal orientation in society and how their roles contribute to concerns of equity, inclusion, and diversity within arts and culture management, research, and professional responsibilities. My background in theatre arts management, community arts, and art for social change all influence my approaches to classroom work.
