Artist Residency Activities on Campus

Martha Redbone ResidencyThe Green Music Center is committed to connecting the artists we present in our concert halls with academic partners across campus. Artists participate in activities such as lectures, demonstrations, workshops, and conversations with students, faculty, and staff, all of which aim to foster deep engagement with diverse artistic experiences that explore a variety of themes. Activities are designed to develop creative capacities, critical thinking skills, and encourage participants to investigate communal and personal values while building empathy for the experiences of others.
