This past year the University of Nebraska at Omaha’s College of Communication, Fine Arts, and Media created a new series of Creative Forums. The discussions will center on different artistic disciplines, like theatre, art, and music. Organizing and moderating these events is Hal France, who says one goal of the Creative Forums was to provide new avenues for students to connect with successful artists.
“Create an opportunity for students to interact with professionals,” he said. “So, we have a series that brings professional artists to campus. We have forums, we talk, we ask questions, we feature them, and usually we preview an upcoming performances that students will then have access to.”
France also says these events are also intended to engage the general public.
“And get the community into the campus.”
The next Creative Forum features the Director and designers of Opera Omaha’s upcoming production of John Adams “A Flowering Tree.” It will take place Monday, January 19, at 7 pm, at UNO’s Weitz Community Engagement Center.
On the following Wednesday, January 21 at 3 pm is a preview of the Omaha Symphony’s “Northern Lights Festival.” That forum will be held in the Strauss Performing Arts Center. A week later in the UNO Theatre will host a forum on Broadway “Camelot,” presented by Omaha Performing Arts. This event will be at noon on January 28 in the Weber Fine Arts Building.
On Monday, March 23 at 7 pm, performers from Opera Omaha’s production of Beethoven’s “Fidelio” will present at the Weitz Community Engagement Center. Parking for all events is available at the Weitz Community Engagement Center, lots D & E. Attending students will receive tickets to select shows.
