Czech Theater and Culture Program

You are cordially invited to join us for an information session on the Summer 2023 Czech Theatre and Culture Program. Led by Professors Daniel Matthews and Karen Mozingo, this program is open to undergraduate and graduate students of all majors, with priority given to applicants from regional (non-Columbus) campuses. 

Students will learn about the history and culture of the Czech people through the lens of Theatre, which has played a central role in sustaining Czech society throughout periods of war, political strife, and occupations. This Faculty-led experience will tour famous theatres, sites, museums, and more to give students a high-impact look into how the Czechs have preserved and united their culture, weathered hard times, and even inspired revolution with Theatre.

Students participating in this program will be visiting Prague during the world-famous Prague Quadrennial: 

The Prague Quadrennial of Performance Design and Space was established in 1967 to bring the best of design for performance, scenography, and theatre architecture to the front line of cultural activities to be experienced by professional and emerging artists as well as the general public. The quadrennial exhibitions, festivals and educational programs act as a global catalyst of creative progress by encouraging experimentation, networking, innovation, and future collaborations. The Quadrennial aims to honor, empower, and celebrate the work of designers, artists, and architects while inspiring and educating audiences who are the most essential element of any live performance.

The information session will be held in hybrid fashion, please join us December 1 at 4:30pm in either 100 Enarson Classroom Building (Columbus campus) or virtually (register here with your email address).
