Tepper is a leading writer and speaker on U.S. cultural policy and his work has fostered national discussions around topics of cultural engagement, creative work and careers, art and democracy, and the transformative possibilities of a 21st century creative campus.

He is the author of Not Here, Not Now, Not That! Protest Over Art and Culture in America and co-editor and contributing author of the book Engaging Art: The Next Great Transformation of America’s Cultural Life." Prior to ASU, Tepper was on the faculty at Vanderbilt University where he was a chief architect of the Curb Center for Art, Enterprise and Public Policy, a national think tank for cultural policy and creativity.



Creative Matters series

The Creative Matters lecture series is sponsored by the UI Office of the Vice President for Research in collaboration with the UI Arts Advancement Committee. A Q&A session will follow his talk. The event is free and open to the public.

The Creative Matters lecture series, launched in Fall 2015, seeks to demonstrate that creativity and innovation are not only at the core of all research and discovery, but also central to our human experience. Our lineup of speakers includes artists, thinkers, builders, and doers who challenge conventional thinking about creativity, science, and artistic expression, and borrow from a range of influences and disciplines in their work.



Individuals with disabilities are encouraged to attend all University of Iowa-sponsored events. If you are a person with a disability who requires a reasonable accommodation in order to participate in this program, please contact Leslie Revaux at leslie-revaux@uiowa.edu in advance of the event.
