This month’s number is six! Six researchers from ASU’s Herberger Institute presented at the Alliance for the Arts in Research Universities (a2ru) this month at the University of Georgia. The 2018 theme, Arts Environments: Design, Resilience, and Sustainability, was an invitation to explore the relationship between creativity and diverse cultural locations, by framing discussions about design, resilience and sustainability in context of interdisciplinary artistic and environmental practice. Presenters included Lauren Hayes and Sha Xin Wei with the ASU School of Arts, Media and Engineering, Dan Collins and Christine Lee with the ASU School of Art, Filiz Ozel with The Design School at ASU and Megan Workmon, director of Herberger Institute student engagement.
