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.
This initiative is funded by an endowment gift to launch The Deborah and Kenneth Novack Creative Citizens 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. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
The 2021–2022 Creative Citizens in Action theme, Fluid Mutualism, investigated intergenerational symbiotic relationships, networks and strategies expanding within different communities, species, disciplines and territories.
At CCA, we are committed to working with faculty, staff, students and election officials to reduce barriers to student voting.
