Year of the Arts Faculty Grants

The Year of the Arts executive steering committee is delighted to announce that the Dean of Faculty Office, in collaboration with the Year of the Arts, has funded seventeen Year of the Arts faculty grant proposals. The funded projects range from musical performances and sound installations to an iron-casting workshop and an exhibition of bone daggers from Papua New Guinea.

Year of the Arts Faculty Grants were awarded through a competitive application and review process. Faculty were encouraged to submit project-proposals for grants up to $4000. Projects could be curricular, co-curricular, or extra-curricular, with the only requirements being that projects be (a) arts-related; (b) commence prior to the end of the fall 2013 term; and (c) take place on campus. Proposals that promised broad, campus wide interest, demonstrate collaboration among departments or organizations, or that engaged students were particularly valued. See full list of grant projects below.

Year of the Arts faculty grants are generously supported by the Office of the President and the Office of the Provost as part of Dartmouth's Year of the Arts initiative in collaboration with the Dean of the Faculty.
