The Community Engagement and the Arts Faculty Learning Community (FLC) held their first meeting of the academic year this week. They were joined by Molly Sturges, this year’s Corcoran Visiting Professor for Community Engagement. Molly spoke to the FLC about her community engaged work.
Molly founded an artist led nonprofit in New Mexico called Littleglobe. More information regarding the work that they do can be found here: http://www.littleglobe.org. Molly also worked as the founder, artistic director, and composer for “FIREROCK: Pass the Spark”, which is a community-engaged piece focusing on climate change which is now performed around the nation. Further details on this can be found here: http://www.firerockmusical.com
During this year at GW, Molly is focusing on launching her latest piece, “Waking the Oracle”, which will be performed by students from the Corcoran School of Art and Design, as well as community partners.
The FLC thoroughly enjoyed hearing from Molly and are looking forward to their meetings for the rest of the year.
