Explore, Play, Create

Two creative spaces provide endless opportunities to bring your ideas to life.

 

Design Cultures & Creativity students have access to two spaces on campus to explore their creativity, work on design projects, and enjoy the company of their peers while playing games, making crafts, creating art and music, and more: the DCC Makerspace, located in Prince Frederick Hall, and the Sound Studio, located in Taliaferro Hall. These spaces are hosted by Makerspace and Sound Studio Managers — a select group of current DCC students — who can assist visitors with projects and equipment. Throughout each semester, DCC alumni and invited guests hold workshops, and Managers organize activities for students to get to know each other and the resources in both spaces.
