Marylhurst alumni and faculty in the music therapy program took an active role in the planning and presentation of the 2014 Western Regional American Music Therapy Association conference in Portland.
Dr. Jan Dabrowski, dean of the College of Arts & Sciences, was a featured speaker at the Time-Based Art Festival in September 2013.
Artist Emily Roysdon invited an array of specialists to talk about time — conceptually, abstractly, poetically, practically, materially and performatively — in symbols, text, stars, characters and movements.
Through a series of talks and workshops, Roysdon attempted "to re-organize, un-articulate and dis-compose time into something that I can put back together in another way. To find more space in time."
She was joined by astronomer Jan Dabrowski, playwright Andrea Stolowitz, writer Sara Jaffe, astrologer Rhea Wolf, ecofeminist Jackie Davis, lighting designer Itai Erdal, and choreographers Miguel Gutierrez and Keith Hennessy.
