Ava Swanson

Minister of Arts & Culture

A musician, actor, director & (slowly but surely) producer. Ava is going into her third art-invested year at Quest. Her question is, 'How is Performance Embodied?' through which she explores artistic and identity performance. As the Minister of Arts and Culture, her goals are to secure accessible arts spaces on campus, to revamp large-scale annual events, and to streamline the events-creation process for students. She wants this year's arts initiatives to be contemporary to the student body, even if they root in tradition. This way, the students can meaningfully contribute to institutional memory but produce events that are pertinent to the present Quest community. She looks forward to supporting your arts and cultural initiatives this year!
