New College of Florida is sponsoring dozens of events this fall intended to connect the public, the arts and the humanities, including dance, music, choreography, Asian film, the poetry of hip-hop music and workshops on narrative writing and computer game design.

Funded by a five-year $750,0000 grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, New College: Connecting the Arts and Humanities on Florida’s Creative Coast seeks to foster deeper understanding of the arts and humanities through new programs at New College and with local arts organizations and the Cross-College Alliance.

The next event is Friday, a Master Class with Martha Graham’s Peggy Lyman, from 1-2 p.m. in the College Hall Music Room.
