Cultural Enrichment

The WRC seeks to encourage the love of and exposure to literature and the artistic process and to add to the cultural offerings of the University. The following are some of the programs we organize and offer:

  • Poetry Readings. We hold open mike poetry/literature readings at which any student or faculty wishing to share work is invited to participate.
  • Chautauqua. Each spring we hold our annual festival of the arts. All students and faculty are invited to display or perform their work and to explain their creative processes to the audience. In years past, participants have offered the following demonstrations: fencing, drama, belly-dancing, video, saxophone, and so on.
  • International Pot Luck Supper. We typically invite all members of the University, particularly the Conversation Partner and Group participants, to bring dishes representing their heritage and share an evening of food and conversation.
  • Speakers. We host talks from faculty or other individuals connected to writing and the arts.
