IPLACe: The Interdisciplinary Performance and the Liberal Arts Center at Wake Forest University.

When you first imagined life on a college campus, you probably thought of a place filled with smart, inventive people having inspiring conversations about every subject imaginable. IPLACe exists to foster just that.

Drawing together artists, scholars, students, faculty, and staff from every corner of our campus, IPLACe uses performance collaborations—with Chemistry, Religion, History, Politics, Math, Romance Languages, Neuroscience, Documentary Film, and really anything else you can think of—to give us all a place, a time, and a reason to talk to each other about the things we care about.
