Evening - Conversation at the The Clarice Smith Center at UMD - College Park, MD
The assumed usage of a performing arts degree education, then a full-time life as a performer has never been one that was realized by many. How can we inform the way young artists are educated in the 21st century? Is the Academy the place for preparing artists to be multi-faceted? Join these artists-turned-entrepreneurs, teachers and creative professionals as they discuss the influence their experiences of higher education had or did not have on their ultimate life paths.
