For two summers, music senior Mitchell Gustin has traveled to New York to take part as a student in IMPACT, a program of NYU Steinhardt; this summer, he’s on staff.
For a student like Mitchell Gustin (MU ‘14), dedicated to collaboration in the arts, New York University’s Interactive Multimedia Performing Arts Collaborative Technology (IMPACT) program was a terrific opportunity. For two summers, IMPACT, which takes place in NYU’s Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development, was a great place for Mitchell to learn and experience the city and a diverse international student body. During his time with IMPACT, his contributions grew so valuable and his work so influential that this summer he was hired onto the staff of the program. The culminating performance of IMPACT took place on August 14. Mitchell will be returning to Seattle to continue his senior year, and he anticipates receiving his BMus from Cornish this December.
Below, check out Mitchell’s video of his work with IMPACT, which offers an idea of the depth and variety of his contributions to the program:
NYU Steinhardt describles the program: “IMPACT (Interactive Multimedia Performing Arts Collaborative Technology), is a collaborative summer workshop that develops individual awareness and skills in using technology to enhance and extend artistic expression. This is a unique interdisciplinary learning experience that encourages international and local participants to work with their disciplines in collaboration with others to develop their artistic growth and learn new arts technologies. ”
