The Philosophy School of Phish is collaborating with PhanArt to offer a unique opportunity for students to actively engage with their philosopical investigations while learning about the Phish community. As part of their coursework, students will conduct interviews with PhanArt artists and write essays incorporating the artists’ interviews with themes from reading assignments and course discussions.
