The Art Education and Community Practice Masters Program is an interdisciplinary, non-certification program which combines coursework in contemporary artistic practice, educational theory, and social activism. Our focus is to prepare artists, educators, designers, community organizers, and other publicly situated activists to work within community-based settings, museums, NGOs, or broader public and civic contexts, towards initiating social change through the arts.



The Project, Mural Maps in the Lower East Side, along with an article co-authored by Dipti Desai and Priyanka Dasgupta, was featured in Interartive #87, a digital platform for art and thought. Click here for the article: Street Art and its Languages

The project was also featured in the NYU Arts Digest. Click here for issue: Community Storytelling
