The Arts Initiative, a partnership with the Humani- ties Institute and the six campus arts departments, in-

augurated an Arts faculty lecture series in 2011-2012 that featured recently hired faculty in Music, Theatre & Dance, and Art Studio. Laurie San Martin, associate professor of music and Arts Initiative faculty assistant, spearheaded the lecture series as a way for the campus community to get a peek into the research, thought, and creative processes of UC Davis’s arts faculty. San Martin also recruited a talented pool of arts graduate students as an Arts Story Corps to write a series of features about the arts on campus. “The faculty lecture series and the story corps are two examples of the ways that we are reaching out and highlighting the people, ideas, and ac- tivities that make up the arts departments at UC Davis,” said San Martin.

San Martin also spent 2011-2012 planning for a week-

long music and arts festival on the theme of migration. With the support of the Mondavi Center for the Per- forming Arts, the division of Humanities, Arts, and Cul- tural Studies, and the campus’s arts departments, the festival, set for January 30-February 3, 2013, and titled “Worlds of Discovery and Loss: The Art of Migration,” will showcase the work of UC Davis graduate students and faculty alongside those of visiting artists, perform- ers, and musicians. The Humanities Institute, with the support of the UC Davis Dean of Humanities, Arts, and Cultural Studies, created the Arts Initiative in 2010-2011 to promote and support the creative work of the six campus arts departments and programs: Theater and Dance, Music, Art Studio, Creative Writing, Technocul- tural Studies, and Design.
