About the Event
The arts are frequently lumped in with the humanities as a means of institutional organization in universities. However, students in the arts may have very different talents, skillsets, and interests than those of other students.
Students outside traditional arts disciplines may also be interested in and highly qualified for careers at artistic and cultural institutions. Careers in the arts and cultural production are numerous and diverse—especially in New York City—and many offer PhDs and MAs excellent opportunities to put their research, communication skills, and training to work in service of their artistic interests.
In this career panel, we’ll hear from successful professionals about leveraging your academic work into a rewarding career in the arts and cultural production. Panelists will share their own experiences, offer insight and advice, and be available for informal networking immediately following the program.
Raymond Codrington (PhD, Cultural Anthropology), Executive Director, Hi-ARTS
Andrew Kircher (PhD Candidate, Theatre), Director of the Devised Theater Initiative and Associate Dramaturg, The Public Theater
Whitney Rutter (MALS, International Affairs), New Business Strategist, Local Projects and Board President, ArtTable
