Arts, Communications & Media

Welcome to the Arts, Communications, and Media Community!

This community is geared towards anyone interested in working in arts (art and design, theater, music, dance) communications (advertising, PR, marketing, journalism, publishing), entertainment (film, TV, the music business, tours/events), and arts administration (arts management, museum studies, arts education).

You don’t have to be an actor, an artist, a filmmaker or a writer to engage. Are you a tech whiz and also creative? Are you good with numbers and passionate about dance? Are you an avid environmental activist who loves show tunes? There are so many interesting roles in these sectors, whatever your major and whether you are generating creativity or being a major support behind the scenes. All are welcome!
