PNCA Fall Graduate Symposium:
“Visualizing Resistance: Examining the Social Functions of Art and Design” 

October 5-7, 2017

For three days this October, Hallie Ford School of Graduate Studies at PNCA is excited to invite the PNCA Community, as well as all inquiring graduate candidates, to come learn more about our dynamic suite of graduate programs, and discover how we empower artists and designers to reimagine what art and design can do in the world.

Connecting design thinking to design doing, Oregon College of Art and Craft and Pacific Northwest College of Art have collaborated to create a unique MFA Program grounded in hands-on making, entrepreneurial strategies, and social and environmental engagement.

Combining a mentor-based approach with an exceptional visiting artists program, students work one-on-one with nationally and internationally recognized designers, makers, and scholars in a self-directed curriculum that challenges them to bring to life the full strength of their ideas and skills.

With a curriculum focused on the development of a strong artistic voice, the realization of work for a specific community or client, and entrepreneurism that connects making a living with making a difference, the MFA in Applied Craft and Design is the only graduate program of its kind.
