Funding that amplifies the transformative power of cross-disciplinary methods and practices in public-facing, community partner-engaged work.
The goal of this project is to develop a set of language science activities that both feature the Spanish language as their subject matter and also can be conducted in Spanish. These activities will be integrated into the public outreach efforts of the Language Sciences Research Lab embedded within the COSI museum; moreover, this project will create the necessary infrastructure (including student training materials and museum advertising materials) to ensure that the activities continue to be used past the end of the project.
This project will enact an intentional exit strategy for the Be the Street project. In doing so, it will transfer the intention of the spirit of the project to an organized, institutionally-supported group of community leaders who have indicated their interest in carrying the work forward in a way that aligns with their existing and ongoing community-based work.
This project aims to continue and sustain a drug-prevention program in two Columbus public schools located in the epicenter of the opiate epidemic in Franklin County: South High School and Marion Franklin High School, both on the Southside. Funding will support a graduate student who will serve as facilitator as well as the purchase of materials for the in-class activities, so that the program can continue when the service-learning course is offered again in 2020 and 2021.

This project would enable the lower level of the Pizzuti building to become the home to an ongoing, public-facing educational collaboration between the Columbus Museum of Art and OSU. Graduate and undergraduate students taking courses in the History of Art and AAEP would be able to develop a range of skills doing hands-on museum work like budgeting, installation, lighting, catalogue writing and production and registrarial management.

Many community-engaged projects have teaching and student-centered work at their core. This may look like service-learning or field school. It may also take the form of working with youth or training teachers. And sometimes, it looks like an interdisciplinary plan of study or incubator space that makes room for student-led creative experiment.
The following entities either support community-engaged work that integrates artistic practice in some way or are experts in working with community partners and could (or do) provide critical research or skill sets in doing this work ethically, thoroughly, and humanely.
