Creative Citizens in Action

Creative Citizens in Action (CCA@CCA) is a college-wide initiative that promotes creative activism and democratic engagement through public programs, exhibitions, and curriculum connections. Founded in 2018, the initiative grew out of CCA’s collaboration with alumni Hank Willis Thomas and For Freedoms during fall 2018, and is being expanded based on a shared desire by CCA students, faculty, and staff for more connected programming related to art, activism, social justice, democratic engagement, and current events.

The goals of CCA@CCA are:

  1. Cultivate democratic participation and creative activism.
  2. Create opportunities for meaningful student and faculty interactions focused on the topic of creative citizenship.
  3. Create connect points between new and existing curriculum, coursework, and public programs.

Fall 2020 programming is funded by a new endowment gift to launch The Deborah and Kenneth Novack Creative Citizens Program Series, an annual series of public programs focused on creative activism that spans the disciplines of art, design, architecture, and writing. CCA@CCA is overseen by the Exhibitions & Public Programming department in partnership with Student Affairs, Libraries, Academic Divisions, Communications, and faculty. More information about fall programs will be posted shortly. Please contact with any questions.
