Continue listening to MVCCPOV: Voices from the Valley. Chapter Three focuses on the college’s grant funded Mosaics program.
Moraine Valley Community College Fine and Performing Arts Center received a grant from the Association of Performing Professionals (APAP) for the Building Bridges: Arts, Culture and Identity program. The program supports MVCC’s Mosaics: Muslim Voices in America programming, which explores the breadth of American culture through the lens of Muslim artists living and practicing in the United States, with a focus on personal narrative. This project envisions a mosaic of stories to celebrate the diversity of Muslims in America. In March 2018, Mosaics presented a week long residency to the campus, featuring performance artist, who also provide instructional and discussion based workshops.
Voices from the Valley got a chance to interview not only the resident artists but the Director of Moraine’s Fine Arts and Performance Center, Tommy Hensel as well. Listen to all four episodes in Chapter Three.
