The Center for Creative Research (CCR) is a multi-year pilot project, funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and administered by the New England Foundation for the Arts (NEFA), designed to create and implement, innovative long-term strategies for artist-university interaction that complement existing models; highlight and facilitate the trans/interdisciplinary contributions artists can make as scholars/researchers to the intellectual life of the university; and, enable artists to access the resources of these institutions in ways which are meaningful to their investigations and inquiry. The Center is currently made up of 11 Founding Fellows (Ann Carlson, Pat Graney, David Gordon, Margaret Jenkins, Bebe Miller, Ralph Lemon, Liz Lerman, Eiko Otake, Dana Reitz, Elizabeth Streb and Jawole Willa Jo Zollar); Artist-in-Residence, Ain Gordon; Project Director, Dana Whitco; and Senior Advisor, Sam Miller, President of Leveraging Investments in Creativity (LINC).
