As of today, September 8, 2017, the RISD Writing Center has a new name: the Center for Arts & Language (A&L). This name reflects our growth in mission and services and our spirit of openness—or perhaps, "&-ness." Today also happens to be National Ampersand Day (thank you, June Shin, for pointing out this amazing fortuity). Let us celebrate the occasions with a favorite quote:
"If the work is a boat, the artist-interlocutor is a sailor ... translating, annotating, mediating, criticizing, interpreting, and extending the contents of the different instances of articulation. ... The artist takes custody of what might have begun within his or her life, consciousness, and body, but the work is already on its way out into the world." —Raqs Media Collective, “How to Be an Artist by Night”
& Come visit. You can find us in the very same place: College Building 240.
