Grum Project Brings Slate of Artists to Campus


By Kate Lawless

We’re looking forward to welcoming four artists this year as part of the Grum Project, our artist-in-residence series. Read more about the program here.

  • Composer Geoff Hudson will be composing a choral piece written by Williston students. He recently completed a piece called “Passion for the Planet,” addressing climate change through music.
  • Choreographer, director, and Broadway performer for more than 25 years, Shannon Lewis will be working with Williston’s  dancers. Lewis choreographed the new musical The Secret Silk.
  • Miguel Bregante will visit to work with our theater, Spanish, and visual art students this spring. Artistic Director of La Mona Ilustre—a theater company based in Santiago, Chile—Bregante approaches theater-making through a combination of collaboration, movement, physical storytelling, puppetry, and mask.
  • Shamsia Hassani, a muralist from Afghanistan whose visit last spring was postponed because of the pandemic, is slated to come to campus this spring, if travel is permitted.
