    Dear … ,

    This summer, I’m set to travel back to China on a post-DukeEngage RIPP (research in practice) fellowship – this time to work with the Hua Dan branch in Sichuan, China.

    I’m attracted to Hua-dan for the same reason that I was attracted to it before – namely that it’s a not-for-profit organization that is committed to the advancement of personal and social transformation through the innovative use of the arts. As a visual arts student at Duke, I’ve benefited not only from “traditional” aspect of art education (here defined as technique and art history) but also from the broader “liberal arts” atmosphere of the university: namely, the possibility of interdisciplinary collaboration between the various academic and artistic branches towards a positive social end. This summer, I plan to “explore within a structured context how to apply a creative, arts based, teaching style towards positive social change” (a bit of formality placed in my grant application). Basically, it all boils down to this: I want to see what I read about in action. How do the arts help people?

    I’m excited to see it being done up close and in live action.
