Arts & Technologies

Arts & Technology Cluster

In the Arts and Technologies cluster, students, faculty, staff, and community partners focus on the processes of effective story-telling and making things. We value communication, collaboration, creative problem-solving, and learning for the sake of learning. We study, promote, and practice the intentional use of tools and technologies to enable the creation, sharing, and reception of our work.

The Problem

A small Canadian seacoast community offers youth little cultural enrichment in the arts.

Awareness of the Issue

The local Canadian school lacks a full-time art or music teacher and there are few opportunities to participate in theatre.

Collaborative Team Projects

PSU graduate students worked with youth in partnership with the Concerned Citizens of St. Martins, New Brunswick, and the St. Martins Summer Theatre.

Proposal Presentations

Cross-cultural integrated arts activities included a musical theatre production, a K–2 arts program, an African drumming workshop, an art show, and an intergenerational chorus.

Improved Outcomes

American and Canadians collaborated on interdisciplinary musical theatre and arts projects. PSU graduate students taught workshops and created integrated arts opportunities.
