CCAI supports the College’s ongoing mission to nurture creativity and intellectual curiosity while preparing students to contribute to society as artists, citizens, and innovators thru a series of annual events that engage the Cornish community in an ongoing dialogue about the importance and relevance of art in society.
The annual events follow the model of the The September Project, a national grassroots organization that encourages events about freedom during the month of September. Cornish Citizen Artist Initiative events touch on the following:
