Each academic year the DCF chooses a theme upon which to base its programming. The theme for the 2012-13 academic year is Centering the Arts at Dartmouth. This theme is adopted in concert with the President's and Provost's announcement of the upcoming academic year as the Year of the Arts at Dartmouth. The opening of the Black Family Visual Arts Center, the 50th anniversary of the Hopkins Center for the Performing Arts and the renovation and expansion of the Hood Museum of Art all prompted this celebration. Each of our member centers will devote some of its programming efforts to celebrating the power of the arts in promoting our various missions.
Our goals this year are to spotlight:
The Dartmouth Centers Forum as a group, and its members individually, present events throughout the academic year in support of the current theme. Members of the DCF program throughout the entire year. Please check back often to learn about upcoming events related to Centering the Arts at Dartmouth.
For the past two years, the DCF also has provided funding through a Request for Proposal (RFP) process to students, faculty, and staff interested in hosting a program based upon the DCF's theme. This year the DCF, in collaboration with the Year of the Arts (YOA) Steering Committee, is requesting proposals from staff and students for event funding during the winter and spring terms. (Faculty event proposals are being considered via another funding source through the Year of the Arts.) Three proposals were awarded funding in the fall term. More information on them can be found on the Past Events page of Centering the Arts at Dartmouth and in an article on the events in Dartmouth NOW.
The DCF currently is accepting proposals for spring term programming (due date: April 5th). More information on the RFP process for the spring term can be found on the "Current Theme" page.
In addition to programming funded through our RFP and DCF-led programming, the DCF's member centers will conduct programming focused on Centering the Arts at Dartmouth. Some events have already been held (see the Past Events page). More events are in the works. Information on future events will be available here and on the Upcoming Events page. Please check back often to learn about newly scheduled events related to the Centering the Arts at Dartmouth theme.
