Laurie Alexander, Associate University Librarian for Learning and Teaching, participates in the inaugural U-M UpstART Festival. Her presentation, "Learning and the Arts: The Library as Creative Partner," explores how libraries are engaging with and increasingly collaborating with the arts in the teaching and learning context.
Art is how we express our lives and who we are. It is everywhere. It is a way to search for identify in the presence of others, a way to see our own possibilities, and a way to open, rather than close conversations.
The UpstART Festival, March 31 - April 3, lifts up the arts, both disruptive and beautiful, on the University of Michigan campus, from expression to performance, and from scholarship to research. By using the arts as both our prism and touchstone, we see how the arts permeate and influence learning across all disciplines on campus. Sponsored by the University of Michigan Arts Consortium.
