When & Where
Center for Collaborative and International Arts at Georgia State University
The Center for Collaborative and International Arts (CENCIA) is a research center in the College of Arts and Sciences at Georgia State University. It brings together creative writers, visual artists, composers, musicians, filmmakers, and scholars engaged in arts-related research with scholars in disciplines across the academy. CENCIA's primary mission of enriching campus and community life through engagement in the arts is changing the nature of research on campus by placing emphasis on connecting arts research to the public we serve. Our overriding research concerns remain: How does this arts research affect the community? How does it affect our city and other cities? How does it affect the world?
All CENCIA sponsored programs are free and open to the public.
