Yale Stands with New Haven in Responding to COVID-19

Where would a perfect city be located? What laws would a perfect city have? How much of its resources would the city devote to supporting literature and the arts? On Saturday December 7th, New Haven students and families worked with Citizens-Thinkers-Writers fellows and professors to discuss topics philosophers and writers started thousands of years ago. Students learned that even with a blank slate, designing a perfect city was not as easy as it seemed. MOSAIC (Minds on Society, Arts, Ideas, and Culture) is a special lecture series designed to share the work of Yale faculty in the arts and humanities with the community.

Everyone—from media personalities, teachers, parents, to friends— has specific ideas about how you should live, what you should think about, and even what it means to succeed. But what do you have to say? WriteOutLoud, a new writing program from Yale Pathways to Arts & Humanities, gave students a chance to read, write, and raise questions about topics such as rebellion, identity, success, and education. 

On April 16th, Pathways students visited the Yale Center for British Art for an inside peek into museum curation. They learned about the roles of museum curators and how exhibitions are designed and created. During this event, students worked closely with museum curators and educators and had an exclusive tour of the William Hunter exhibition at the YCBA.
