Breathe! We are about to start the new school year and you may be a bit stressed! It's okay to just take a step back, breathe, and give yourself a break.


It's standard for the students in the Intro to CCI course to study space. Usually this topic can be approached by looking at places like museums or amusement parks, but Dr. Patrick Fuery decided to have his students download a ghost hunting app so they could explore dark spaces and the creative industry of dark tourism. Confused? Well, a space is transformed by cultural narrative -- how you're looking at it through a creative lens changes your experience of a space, so by looking at a space as if it's haunted automatically imposes a cultural narrative upon it. Try ghost hunting for yourself by downloading Ghost Radar in the app store.


With Dr. Patrick Feury

We made a CCI Spotify playlist in case you are in need for some inspiration, creative energy, or just looking for new music curated by you fellow CCI peers.
