Project Details

Overview

Here guests discover the REAL story of SCAD: that one of America’s best art and design colleges was the product of a visionary woman named Paula Wallace. She had a dream for a new kind of higher education institution: one that produced inspired, optimistic artisans fully equipped to succeed in the world of creative work. In creating the Savannah College of Art and Design, she changed the lives of thousands of young people, who, in turn, have changed the world with their courage and creativity.

Challenge

How could BRC make the adventures of SCAD founder Paula Wallace come alive in a way that made them universal, so every guest could see themselves as fellow dreamers? How could BRC create a show so wondrous and powerful that prospective students would decide on the spot to enroll at SCAD?

Solution

SCADstory welcomes guests into a narrative space where they can’t help but see Paula’s dreams as a reflection of their own. The immersive space translates Paula’s journey into a series of engaging, emotional vignettes embedded in unique theatrical environments. The show acts as a subtle call to action: join us and turn your own dreams into reality. Who wouldn’t want to take that dare?

Key learnings

Prospective students coming to SCAD want to know that their education will be a launch pad to a professional creative career. By experiencing and seeing themselves in the audacious dream of SCAD’s founder, these young people are reassured they’re in just the right place to find their own destiny.
