CAAD programming is loosely organized around the senses, with 2014-15’s theme of “Vision,” 2015-16’s theme of “Sound,” and 2016-17’s theme of “Touch.”
The Story Collider
- We are doing this event ONLINE at storycollider.org. On April 28, we’ll present a special lineup of stories on the theme of changing climates — whether they’re about responding to the challenges posed by our global climate or adapting to shifting environments in our everyday lives. Hosted by Erin Barker and Katie Wu. This show is supported by Vassar College Grand Challenges Program, the Office of the Dean of the Faculty, the Henry Grillo Science Fund., and the Howard Hughes Medical Institute.
- MyCOVIDStory, begun by Sara Kragness at Smith College, is "meant to help facilitate this movement, through recording our stories, sharing them online, and collectively showing our government what citizens are going through - from unemployment to healthcare insecurity to the inability to get tested if you are ill and much more - we have so many stories to share and each and every one matters."
