IDEAS THAT SERVE - LEIGH WILSON SMILEY, THEATRE

Leigh Wilson Smiley, associate professor in and director of the School of Theatre, Dance, and Performance Studies, was recently awarded a Foxworth Creative Enterprise Initiative grant to support a theater course where she will teach students how to apply their performance skills collaboratively with the community to build performances that make visible the issues pressing to the partnering community.

In this video, she shares how students will partner with the community to build a final performance piece as a way of opening dialogue, listening and acting to solve problems.
