Spring 2014 witnessed the third iteration of Bucknell's Extreme Creativity class: a five-week intensive course sponsored by the Presidential Arts Initiative that invites upperclassmen to engage in an immersive process of creative, interdisciplinary discovery. Focused on Rhythm and Narrative, the 2014 course was co-led by Profs. Dustyn Martincich (Theater and Dance) and Barry Long (Music) and also featured guest lectures and workshops with Bucknell arts faculty members.
Sixteen students from a broad variety of majors participated and explored the creative process with a focus on self-discovery through artistic practice. Personal and collective reflections emphasized rhythmic intersections across disciplines and created narratives that explored identity and engaged epic archetypes and myths. In the oral narratives collected here, the students reflect on creativity.
