The Department of Art & Public Policy,
Tisch School of the Arts, New York.
The Department of Art & Public Policy, established by the faculty and the Dean of the Tisch School of the Arts, is an interdisciplinary initiative that includes faculty and students from the 13 departments of Tisch. The Department embodies the School's recognition that young artists and scholars need an opportunity to incubate their ideas outside of the safe haven of the academy, in a dialectic with real-world problems. The courses offered by the Department investigate the social, ethical and political issues facing contemporary artists and scholars, and examine public policy issues that affect their ability to make and distribute their work. The courses are interdisciplinary and may be team taught and may include a practicum as well as theoretical and historical investigations.
