Busting Out of the Ivory Tower: Journey From Academic to Artist
May 16, 2018
Dementia. Genocide. Mental Illness. Writer, artist, and anthropologist Dana Walrath focuses on these subjects in her creative works. She brings hope, insight, and even laughter into the most unexpected places. In this free Ideas on Tap talk, Walrath will blend examples from her books, Like Water on Stone and Aliceheimer’s, with her recent art installations, and show how creative writing and art can be healing for all of us.
VHC’s Ideas on Tap series is designed to convene informal, informative, and provocative conversations, and to strengthen them with a scholar’s expertise. These events are held in partnership with the University of Vermont’s Humanities Center, held at the ArtsRiot restaurant, bar and performing space in Burlington.
