Main Idea

“Main IDEA at Clark U” is a Clark University Student Club helping Clark artists become involved in the community by volunteering at Main IDEA! Club members volunteer for our programs throughout the year to lead our students in various interactive art activities including music, visual art, dance, creative writing, and drama! As Main IDEA was founded in part by Clark University students and alumni, and our summer program is held annually on campus, Clark University continues to play a foundational role in the relationship built between the organization and the Main South community.
