This session explores CARI (the Collaborative Arts Research Initiative) at the University of Alabama.  An in-depth discussion among researchers, directors, and staff on the most recent cohort of CARI projects, moderated by a2ru executive director, Maryrose Flanigan. We will compare and analyze some of the successes, pitfalls, and general lessons learned by CARI staff and researchers; as well as discuss how its guidelines were developed as a partner school within a larger network and what can be learned for others in the a2ru network who are looking to launch or refine programs that celebrate, incentivize, and capitalize on arts-integrated centers and programs.
