ArtCenter Community Hubs

September 6, 2020

Lets get to work! This fall, the idea of a college campus as a physical place has taken on a whole new meaning during the pandemic. ArtCenter Community Hubs have been set up in Beijing, Shanghai and Seoul to provide students with a place to make prototypes, learn together and build community.

“When we had to shut down campus, I immediately became concerned about our international students and how they would be able to continue their degree programs with the physical limitations required of lock down,” said Lorne Buchman, president, ArtCenter College of Design, who inspired the concept of the Hubs. “We all know that isolation can compromise learning. We needed to think about how to build some semblance of community to enrich the education of our students. The Hubs were our answer.”
