xdMFA Thesis Defense Week: Fall 2017

November 13-17, 2017 is xdMFA Thesis Defense Week. Four MFA Candidates will be presenting their work in various places in Cincinnati and Oxford, Ohio. We encourage xdMFA Candidates to share their research and design publicly so their work may be accessible to people in communities directly impacted by their efforts. Next week will be an exciting week when these Candidates’ projects culminate with their final presentations.

Everyone is welcome to join us for any of these presentations. See you next week!
