We Practice Creativity and Story
Antioch is a College of Practice, where students engage in deep collaboration with faculty, staff, other students, alumni, and members of the community at large. Antioch has developed five Areas of Practice—including the practice of Creativity and Story— which address foundational questions of how we: learn to know, learn to make and do, learn to live together, and learn to balance the development of meaningful, healthy inner and outer lives.
Creativity may be our most powerful human impulse. Through storytelling, we make and find meaning. Each is a medium of perspective, passion, depth, and understanding through which we express our experiences of the human condition and our place in the world.
The Herndon Gallery is one of the distinctive resource centers which provide applied learning and practice opportunities to students.
