This Month: Staying at Home with Jacqueline Aguilar.

While there have always been models for online and distance learning, the ways we think about engagement are changing in the wake of COVID-19. What do we gain through low-residency MFA programs, online classes, or other models for distance learning? What do we lose? How do virtual spaces create greater access? Who might still be excluded or left out? What do effective online or low-residency programs look like? How can we structure and support our creative practices at home?

July 2, 2020. 7 pm. On Zoom. Get Lit
