Bloom: A Showcase of Student Creativity 2023

Spring 2023

The Spring 2023 iteration of Bloom was another insightful celebration of student creativity and public engagement, showcasing projects across PAH classes, internships, and more! The Spring 2023 event was curated by Professors Jacqueline Barrios and Harris Kornstein, and projects took the form of maps, guided meditations, board games, web archives, fotonovelas, and more, covering topics ranging from the healing properties of herbal teas to the intersections of religious beliefs and healthcare, playfully pedagogical approaches to understanding viruses, and explorations of the cultural geographies of Tucson and its surrounding areas. Juried by Ken McAllister and Suzanne Panferov Reese, awards were presented in a range of "emergent" categories, reflecting the creativity and themes already present in students' projects.
