Thinking about pursuing a career in the arts? The Office for the Arts and the Office of Career Services have teamed up for a series of one-hour conversations with recent alums working in the arts. Each session will focus on practical lessons and unique insights these arts alums can share about succeeding in their professions. The speakers are (mostly) in their 20s and 30s, and each has a unique story about pursuing theater, dance, writing, film and more.
