We’ve had a very exciting run during our Mobile Library: MUAC edition. Over 200 students attend the university, and have clearly enjoyed using the books as reference materials and volunteering to take care of the library and introduce classmates to its contents. The Rector of the University as well as the professors have been generous in their time and efforts to promote our library amongst students.
Nathalie Johnston presented on career opportunities in the arts, and included fundraising, proposal writing, exhibition planning and curating, as well as options in design, architecture, and education. Students were very responsive, with great ideas and insight into what’s possible for them after their schooling.
MUAC focuses its students on 4 main Arts subjects: sculpture, painting, music and dramatic arts. Facilities are few and an emphasis is placed on traditional forms of the arts. However, the school is eager to reach into the contemporary scene and bring more practicing artists into their curriculum studies.
Mobile Library is sponsored by Foundation for the Arts Initiative and Mr. and Mrs. Serge Pun.
