The Office of Public Programs and Engagement
GAVIN BROWNING, Director of Public Programs and Engagement
The Office of Public Programs and Engagement at Columbia University School of the Arts creates interdisciplinary dialogue through lectures, symposia, readings, film screenings, exhibitions, performances, site visits, and more. Conversations and events take place in cooperation with the Film, Theatre, Writing, Visual Arts, and Sound Arts Programs, the Arts Initiative, the Miriam and Ira D. Wallach Art Gallery, campus groups, and the city. Since the School of the Arts opened The Lenfest Center for the Arts on West 125th Street on the Manhattanville campus, the Office of Public Programs and Engagement has continued to offer an array of activity that strengthens local partnerships while highlighting contemporary scholarship, global perspectives, and compelling voices of our time.
