Wake the Arts is a movement to infuse the arts into every aspect of the Wake Forest experience. Through this shared connection we will elevate Pro Humanitate to develop Wake Forest graduates who are empathetic, curious, and interdisciplinary problem solvers. We believe that all knowledge becomes more impactful when combined with the power of expression.
No matter what field of study one chooses at Wake Forest, it will be enhanced through a culture of creativity that nurtures and celebrates our shared community.
