A Creative Interdisciplinary Community
“Living Arts Engine has been an invaluable community for me during my Freshman year! The amount of creative energy here is incredible, and the people couldn’t be more of a supportive community.”
It’s hard to believe that 10 years have gone by since the Living Arts(Engine) program was created. Founded in 2010, the program has been an integral part of a larger initiative designed to unite the 4 north campus schools and colleges in interdisciplinary creative work through the ArtsEngine program. During this time it has provided a living learning environment for students to more closely explore creative work across disciplines while also providing them with an open, friendly community in which to learn about themselves, make friends and gain a sense of belonging from their very first day on campus.
Our program has evolved significantly since its inception and continues to play a pivotal role in providing first-year students with a foundation for creative exploration – both through our Introduction to Creative Process course and the Collaborative Creative Projects. We are proud to be one of a series of opportunities at UM that prepare our students for an increasingly complex world – one that urgently demands creativity, collaboration, and strong critical thinking skills for success.

Living Arts provided me a sense of community stronger than any other since coming to college. The friendships I made as a mentee and later as a mentor, through things like hanging in our lounge at 4am, have lasted after graduation, even as my class spread across the country and the world.
