This past year the University of Nebraska at Omahaâ€™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.
â€œCreate an opportunity for students to interact with professionals,â€ he said. â€œSo, 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.â€
France also says these events are also intended to engage the general public.
â€œAnd get the community into the campus.â€
The next Creative Forum features the Director and designers of Opera Omahaâ€™s upcoming production of John Adams â€œA Flowering Tree.â€ It will take place Monday, January 19, at 7 pm, at UNOâ€™s Weitz Community Engagement Center.
On the following Wednesday, January 21 at 3 pm is a preview of the Omaha Symphonyâ€™s â€œNorthern Lights Festival.â€ That forum will be held in the Strauss Performing Arts Center. A week later in the UNO Theatre will host a forum on Broadway â€œCamelot,â€ 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 Omahaâ€™s production of Beethovenâ€™s â€œFidelioâ€ will present at the Weitz Community Engagement Center.
