Rooted in the deep traditions of the arts as a powerful means for social change, Arts as Civic Engagement is a platform for students to immerse in arts-based community engagement.

Launched in 2018, the program supports three rising Washington University seniors in a Civic and Community Arts Residency at regional arts organizations. Participants receive a $5,000 stipend in lieu of summer earnings and work as embedded staff members at partner organizations.
