Holy Cross launches ‘Arts Transcending Borders’

Lynn Kremer, professor of theatre at the College of the Holy Cross, spoke recently with Nancy Sheehan from the Worcester Telegram & Gazette about a new collaborative arts initiative at the College, “Arts Transcending Borders” (ATB@HC). Kremer, who is the director of ATB@HC, explained the many facets of the new initiative, including the founding of CreateLab, which will allow eight faculty members from seven disciplines to team teach a course focused on collaboration by students across majors to develop creative solutions to challenges locally and worldwide.

“The current research out there shows that when people work together in teams they come up with more creative solutions to solving the problems of our society and our world,” said Kremer, referencing a study which has shown that visual impressions vary greatly when an image of a person standing in a doorway is shown to an economist, for example, as opposed to a visual artist. “The economist might just see the person and see the edge of the door frame but the artistic types see a bigger, broader expanse and that’s what they bring into the creative team — these different ways of viewing the same thing.”

ATB@HC will officially launch on Wed., April 23 with a performance by Galician bagpiper, pianist, and composer Cristina Pato, who will be the first artist-in-residence at the College for the 2014-15 academic year. The performance will be part of the College’s Academic Conference and will begin at 4:30 p.m. in the Hogan Campus Center Ballroom. The event is free and open to the public. More information is available on the College’s events calendar.
