RSVP on My PrincetonU to see location


Event Description

Are you a grad student interested in getting more involved in the arts, public humanities, or engaged scholarship — either during grad school or after you earn your graduate degree?

Then join us for the first meeting of the 2023-2024 academic year of the Working in the Creative Arts and Public Humanities cohort (WCAPH). We will be meeting at the McCarter Theater for coffee and pastries from 11am-12:15pm on Friday, October 6, to begin to shape the coming academic year around grad students’ desires and interests. We will be joined as always by Debbie Bisno — McCarter’s Director of University and Artistic Partnerships —as well as by the theater’s new Executive Director Martin Miller.

About the WCAPH: Initiated during the 2022-23 academic year, this cohort meets with a diverse range of figures working at cultural institutions, both on and off-campus, to explore the reciprocal relationships between performance and research, criticism and production, theory and practice, and administration and academia, while learning about career paths in the public humanities, theater, arts, and GLAMS (Galleries, Libraries, Archives and Museums). Last year, this included trips to museums, theaters, historical societies, and more in Washington DC and New York City, as well as extended engagement with Princeton’s own McCarter Theater.


How to Arrive: Enter through the McCarter Theater’s glass administration doors across from the Dinky Bar (which are just slightly uphill from the Matthews/Berlin theater entrance). Once inside, there will be signs directing visitors to the Presidents’ Lounge, where we will have our meeting.
