Brave New Worlds

William Shakespeare's The Tempest in the Weitz Center for Creativity

October 20- November 6, 2011
Erling O. and Geneva E. Johnson Room (148), Weitz Center for Creativity


At The end of The Tempest, Miranda, seeing arrayed before her a range of people the likes of which she has never encountered – all strange, different, beautiful, and flawed – shouts, with joy and wonder, “Oh brave new world, that has such people in’t!” And so, as Carleton embarks on new journeys of discovery, as students, professors, and the wider community venture into the college’s new pedagogic and creative spaces, it was entirely fitting that Shakespeare’s final masterpiece was our starting point as we set off into the brave new world of the Weitz Center for Creativity.
