INTERNATIONAL PROGRAM FOR CREATIVE COLLABORATION & RESEARCH
at the UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND SCHOOL OF THEATRE, DANCE AND PERFORMANCE STUDIES
A ten year program funded by the Smith Family Foundation.
Part of a ten million dollar gift for "Defining the Future of the Performing Arts."
A partner in the Global UMD initiative.
The purpose of the International Program for Creative Collaboration & Research is to facilitate the wide range of existing collaborative activities within the School of Theatre, Dance, and Performance Studies, to initiate new collaborations, and to seek grant funding for the continued support of such projects. As scholar-artists, we treasure direct live human interaction and will be re-instituting our International Collaborations Initiative Grants under the direction of the IPCCR to facilitate such interactions. But we also recognize that in the 21st century live interactions can be enhanced with long term digital collaborations. To that end we are creating a World Outreach Classroom, a World Outreach Seminar Room and two World Outreach Studios over the next three years in order to research best practices for such collaborations in the performing arts.
