Friends, class members, and community engagements enthusiasts, this is the first post of what will be many concerning Community Engagements Through the Arts. Some of you may be wondering what this phenomenon is. Community? Engagements? Arts? Well, for starters this is a class taught at Transylvania University in Lexington, KY by professors Kremena Todorova and Kurt Gohde (who will be referred to here on out as Kremena and Kurt). The goal of this class is to form a relationship with the community by engaging in artistic projects with the community. The outcome of this will manifest itself in many ways, some recognizable and others not so much. So far the class has met two times and will continue to meet on Wednesday nights and Friday afternoons as well as on other days at specific times as seen fit.
