Creative Citizens in Action

Last updated on Jan 12, 2024

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 with any questions.
