In Fall 2018, Georgetown University and the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts launched The Georgetown – Kennedy Center Seminar Series, a new collaboration linking Kennedy Center performances, creative talent and community patrons with Georgetown faculty and students.
The Fall 2018 Seminars were comprised of three paired performances and conversations with Georgetown faculty experts, students, and Kennedy Center creatives that delved into the Kennedy Center’s October 2018 – July 2019 theme of “The Human Journey.” The Seminars offered Georgetown students two opportunities: to apply for free tickets to see Kennedy Center performances and conversations with the performance’s creative artists and Georgetown faculty, and to apply for the GU-Kennedy Center Seminar Scholars cohort, an in-depth engagement with the Seminars that enabled Scholars to engage across the three performances.
In Spring 2019, the GU-Kennedy Center Seminars will re-launch as a 1-credit course for undergraduates, “Encounters in Global Performance.” Attending three performances and post-show conversations, engaging in mentored writing and discussions around performances’ key themes, and culminating their work with a presentation at the Kennedy Center Arts Summit, students in the course will have an opportunity to deepen their engagement with public performance and the connections between the university and the public arts.
Patrons attending the performances below are eligible to attend a post-show discussion with Kennedy Center creatives, Georgetown faculty and students, and the GU-KC Seminar Scholars.
Please continue reading for the full schedule of GU-KC Seminars and registration links. This engagement is a partnership between Georgetown College, the Georgetown Humanities Initiative, and the Designing the Future(s) Initiative.
