With invigorated interest in fostering cross-institutional ties, The Mind’s Eye has forged a dynamic partnership with MASS MoCA. Through justice-oriented and equity-centered projects, including Slow: A Symposium in Praxis & Theory and CARE SYLLABUS, The Mind’s Eye and MASS MoCA partnership provides a venue for transdisciplinary collaboration and dialogue to address intersecting contemporary social concerns, including COVID-19, racial justice, and environmental stewardship. 


The Mind’s Eye hosts works-in-progress colloquia featuring MCLA faculty. Colloquia are designed to give faculty an opportunity to share their current research or creative projects with colleagues and benefit from questions and discussion. The call for colloquia participants is currently closed.
