Join us for a series of programs at New College fostering a deeper understanding of the arts and humanities.

New College initiative flourishes along Florida’s creative coast

Initially funded by a five-year $750,000 grant from the Mellon Foundation, New College: Connecting the Arts and Humanities on Florida’s Creative Coast seeks to foster a deeper understanding of the arts and humanities through new programs at New College and with local arts organizations and the Cross College Alliance. Through the expansion of existing public programs and a new series of open seminars, the local community is invited to hear from — and speak with — faculty scholars and artists who are renowned in their fields.

The Mellon Foundation has since awarded a second five-year $750,000 grant to New College of Florida. New College + the Cross College Alliance in the Community, supports curricular and research initiatives that preserve local history, integrate social and racial justice work into artistic practice and teaching, and explore questions of special interest to the local community.

Some events may require advanced registration. Unless otherwise noted all events are free and open to the public. Please wear a mask at all in-person events and try to socially distance, to protect yourself and others.
