A note from Dean Tepper:
From the time I first arrived here at ASU, I’ve been hearing from students, faculty and staff that everyone wants more opportunities to connect across the Herberger Institute, to learn about the creative work being done in other departments and units, and to have time to collaborate, talk and build together.
So we made it happen. October of last year, we hosted our first-ever Herberger Institute Day, for students, staff and faculty from all five schools and the ASU Art Museum.
Throughout the day, our faculty and staff offered dozens of interactive creative workshops and classes, including behind-the-scenes tours of the ASU Art Museum, salsa dancing, mural painting, interactive performances and much more!
The day concluded with #CreaTable, an interactive, creatively curated meal along Forest Mall.
The coming Herberger Institute Day on Thursday, Oct. 11 will be even better than the last!
The new schedule of workshops and classes will be posted soon. We invite you to register for any aspect of the day that fits into your schedule and sparks your interest. Take a workshop (or two or three!) outside of your discipline. This is a rare opportunity to explore the creative processes of musicians, designers, performers and artists whose approaches may be very different from your own. Registration is free, but space is limited.
We hope this day will be eye-opening and bridge-building, a day for sharing information and celebrating creativity in its many forms.
Together, we can change the world.
See you Oct. 11!

Exquisite corpse, or rotating corpse, is a collaborative form of storytelling in the form of a game. To start, a picture or poem is created on a sheet of paper and folded to conceal part of it. The next player adds to the composition, folds, then passes the paper on. This sequence continues until the circle is finished. What emerges is a very surreal representation of our collective imagination.
Come tackle an improvised problem (using an ad-lib) and discover what crazy solutions come about from a collective effort!

"In our lives as students, artists and activists, our mattresses have been a place of comfort and rest, of emergent sexual exploration, and sometimes, of violence. We aim to create a safe space to participate, listen, talk, collaborate, laugh and think about these issues..." - project co-designers. The dialogue will begin with an excerpt from the play With Each Other. Participants will then use their bodies and minds to break down boundaries and have an open conversation about consent and sexual violence prevention on campus. Join us!
