Fort Lewis College
DURANGO PLAYFEST IS PLEASED TO ANNOUNCE THE ADVANCEMENT OF OUR AFFILIATION WITH FORT LEWIS COLLEGE
Fort Lewis College students from across many academic departments including Theatre, Communication Design and Business participate in PlayFest internships. Interns are immersed in all aspects of creative and business-related play development with artists who mentor students in an open dialogue throughout the process.
PlayFest has a year-round educational component as the theatre department now offers a course in planning and executing a nonprofit event. This hands-on learning experience was developed by Felicia Lansbury Meyer, PlayFest’s artistic director and an FLC theatre professor, who teaches the class. Members of the PlayFest board serve as guest lecturers, contributing expertise in areas such as marketing, grant writing and financial management.
