About the Speaker
The New Genres Collective is an oscillating collective of artists across a wide range of mediums and career levels. What unites the group is the collective connection to Rocky Mountain College of Art + Design. Each performance brings together a different mix of students, educators, alumni, and guests, and is produced using a method of improvisation, conceptual planning, and trust. The work often visualizes through performance, film, and installation heavily focused on utilizing new media and experimental technologies.
About the Wayfinding Series
The Wayfinding Series connects students to local creative professionals. With equal parts inspiration and honesty, speakers will share their path towards a successful creative life and all of the twists and turns involved in that journey. Addressing career-focused issues such as industry trends, relevant skills, making connections, and professional fulfillment, speakers will highlight that there is no one way to find and live a successful, creative career. Speakers will represent a variety of creative employment opportunities, connecting to multiple academic departments and revealing that professional creatives are found in diverse and sometimes surprising fields.
