New College Announces December Mellon Grant Arts Events.

Dance, music, choreography, Asian film, the poetry of hip-hop music and even workshops on narrative writing and computer game design– New College of Florida is sponsoring dozens of events this fall intended to connect the public, the arts and the humanities.

Funded by a five-year $750,0000 grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, New College: Connecting the Arts and Humanities on Florida’s Creative Coast seeks to foster deeper understanding of the arts and humanities through new programs at New College and with local arts organizations and the Cross-College Alliance. Through the expansion of existing public programs and a new series of open seminars, the local community is invited to hear from — and speak with — faculty scholars and artists who are renowned in their fields.

Please visit ncf.edu/connecting-arts-humanities for exact dates, times and locations.

DECEMBER

Asian Film Series: “Up the Yangtze”
Date, Time and Location TBD
The Asian Film Series continues with “Up the Yangtze” a 2007 documentary by Zhang Zanbo. New College is partnering with Ringling College of Art and Design, Ringling Museum and the Elling Eide Center to present films by Japanese and Chinese filmmakers.

Narrative Non-Fiction Storytelling Workshop with Maria Vesperi
Thursday, Dec. 6
Time and Location TBD

This workshop brings specialists in nonfiction writing into a discussion of how they collect their material and craft vivid stories for books, newspapers and magazines. The program is organized and moderated by New College Professor of Anthropology Maria D. Vesperi, a former working journalist and a trustee of the Poynter Institute for Media Studies from 1995-2015. Recipient of the 2017 American Anthropological Association Anthropology in Media Award, she is co-editor of the collection Anthropology off the Shelf: Anthropologists on Writing, and executive coordinating editor of Anthropology Now and anthronow.com, a journal and website dedicated to making anthropological writing accessible to wider audiences. This interactive workshop is free and open to the public — the only requirement is an interest in good stories and how they are told.
