#ACreativeGU: Creativity and Scholarship at Georgetown
Join the Library on Thursday, March 28 at 5:00 pm for #ACreativeGU: Creativity and Scholarship at Georgetown. This special panel of student creatives, moderated by Professor Melissa Bruno from the Film and Media Studies Program will explore the universal nature of the creative process. A companion event for the Library’s newest exhibition, The Creative Process, the panel will explore the themes of inspiration, production, and collaboration through the lens of the historic examples on display in the exhibition. They will also discuss how these stages of the creative process resonate today despite how much innovations in technology have changed how artists both produce and disseminate their artwork.
Meet the panelists and moderator below!
