Music and Media Arts MakerSpaces / Music and Media Arts Inquiry and Engagement Hubs

CITME is currently researching and developing a music and media arts maker culture on campus to connect students among the units of the Herberger Insitute for Design and the Arts and across Arizona State University. The first phase of the project focuses on developing a culture among students and faculty to collaborate on music and media arts makerspace projects. During phase 2 we will test several projects in the context of local schools and community venues. This grant project has three primary foci: 1) blurring boundaries and developing and supporting a culture of collaboration around music, media arts, and STEAM communities 2) demonstrating the potential and possibilities of collaboration between people with interest and expertise in music, media arts, and education 3) better understanding how to support processes of STEAM engagement and learning for future scaling across K-12 and community contexts. This project is generously funded by a Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts Research Council Seed Grant.
