What is Washington Park Collaborative?
Washington Park Collaborative is a consortium of three upper level art, architecture, dance and design studios that explore how multidisciplinary design practice can engage professionals, academics, local cultures and communities. Sister studios include ARCH 645/845, URBPLAN 858: Citizen Architect Studio (Arijit Sen, Instructor), DANCE 490: Repertory and Ensemble (Simone Ferro, instructor) and FA255/355/455 Public Art: Social Practice (MIAD; Jill Sebastian, instructor). This trans-disciplinary, multi-campus collaboration is associated with the Buildings-Landscapes-Cultures (www.blcprogram.org) field school.
