Yale '88: A Creative Class.
How to Contribute to the
Quilt of Creative Arts Content.
Many classmates have expressed interest in seeing classmates' artistic endeavors, so whether or not you are coming to New Haven, we're calling all creatives! Are you a writer, poet, filmmaker, painter, photographer, ceramicist, designer, chef, sculptor, architect, furniture maker, musician, dancer, actor, or performance artist? If you think of yourself as a creative (however you define that), we want to hear from you!
There are four ways to participate. They are not mutually exclusive.
Exhibit your work in our on-site display at Reunion
Offer a virtual event. That is, a reading, lecture, screening, with discussion, via zoom (or equivalent.)
Submit your work for an online catalog for before and after Reunion
Submit material for our creative endeavors movie to be screened as one of our class-only sessions at Reunion
(Unfortunately, the deadline for submissions has passed.)
Once you've read the descriptions below, submit your work(s) using the Submission of Works form. If you have more than one item (e.g., multiple books) you may use the same form as many times as necessary.
Virtual Readings, Talks, Screenings and other off-site events
We are encouraging authors, filmmakers, professors and other creatives to offer readings, screenings, or talks as virtual events either before or after the reunion. We have very limited time in New Haven (literally four hours of main programming), but unlimited opportunities to offer virtual class gatherings where individuals can 'take the stage' with their work, and invite interested classmates to join.
So we are encouraging a series of virtual events which allows us to provide more opportunity for all. The reunion committee will help with coordination, tech, planning and promotion. If you hold them before reunion, the discussions they spark can continue at reunion.
Using the submission form, please indicate your interest in offering a virtual program.
This year we will be doing our best to create an online catalog of creative works that are available ongoing. Share links to your creative works, whether it is a place to buy your book, online writing, movie, music, image gallery or creative website. (It's easy to add this as an option when listing items for the on-site display.)
You do not need to attend reunion to participate.
Using the submission form, either enter your online resource individually, or make sure to provide a URL when submitting work for the on-site display.
