Abraham Shapiro Academic Complex (ASAC), Room 327

We are excited to announce the opening of our new CAST Resource Room, Monday, March 12, at 5:30 p.m., in conjunction with the 20th anniversary celebration of the International Center for Ethics, Justice and Public Life, where it’s located. The first space of its kind for CAST and Creative Writing students on campus, the Resource Room will be a place to meet and collaborate on projects or work individually. Designed and implemented by CAST senior Marcelo Brociner, the Resource Room is filled with comfortable chairs, a computer and desk, and a bookshelf of CAST-related books, movies, and other materials for use and inspiration. It is a welcoming, calming space that offers students a place other than the library to get work done and tap into their creativity. Helping design the space, and serving as mentors, have been Elizabeth Bradfield, Associate Professor of the Practice of English and Co-Director of the Creative Writing Program, and Kristin Parker, Deputy Director of the Rose Art Museum.  Both are also members of the CAST Advisory Committee.

The Resource Room is located in Room 327 in the Ethics Center, which is on the third floor of the Abraham Shapiro Academic Complex (ASAC, the building right across from the Heller School and next to the Mandel Humanities Center).

Do you have suggestions for books or films you’d like to see in the room, or do you have any items you’d like to donate? Please email Marcelo Brociner at marcelotuto@gmail.com.
