BART's Creative Leaders in Residence program continues to bring to BART exciting figures whose time with our students has lasting effects. “BART Presents!” is an occasional series featuring the Creative Leaders in public performances and exhibitions. In just the last few years, Creative Leaders to BART have given our students opportunity to work with award-winning poets, scientists, activists, and writers.
“An important element of BART’s academic program is inviting leaders in human thought and creative expression to join our students,” states Executive Director Dr. Jay White. “Whether discovering their voice in poetry or seeing how others express themselves in mathematics or spoken art, BART students are affected by their time with the guest Creative Leaders in Residence—and those individuals never fail to remark how their time with our students permanently affects them!”
