There is no doubt that the brief but influential life of Black Mountain College produced many of the 20th century’s most famous artists—painters, poets, writers, dancers, weavers, ceramicists, and photographers, while also providing a scaffolding on which to construct many of our current ideas pertaining to interdisciplinary studies—and the centrality of the arts in curriculum.
Come join the conversation at Project Connect’s three day conference, Black Mountain College: An Interdisciplinary Experiment (Open Eyes, Open Ears), held in June on the beautiful campus of Asheville School, in Asheville NC. Leading expert in the field, Mary Emma Harris, author of the seminal text, Black Mountain College and the Arts, will offer both a keynote address as well as a workshop: “BMC + Meaning in Contemporary Education.”
Finally, choose from a variety of workshops and further explore these topics in small breakaway group discussions, as our team facilitators attempt to unpack the lessons that the legendary BMC offers and to explore how we might implement those applications in our own schools and classrooms.
