Common Ground on the Hill is a traditional music and arts program at McDaniel College in Westminster, Maryland. This on-campus, summer program recruits master musicians, artists, dancers, writers and crafts people as teachers of specific arts and crafts. The courses are offered in the context of exploring cultural diversity in search of a "common ground" among ethnic, gender, age, and racial groups. Our common ground is our humanity, often best expressed in our music, our art, our dance and even our language. Peaceful solutions to our cultural and inner conflicts can be found in our shared artistic traditions.
