Art+Activism is a college-wide program that looks to challenge our student artists to think about the ways in which creative energy can be utilized as thought-provoking advocacy for change. Microfunding fosters artistic endeavors that are in alignment with Columbia College Chicago’s mission. In considering the ways in which an art practice can facilitate conversation and engage with timely issues we offer various support to collaborative, student-powered projects and initiatives that expand beyond the studio.
