Berkeley Arts + Design
Provide all students with opportunities to engage with arts-based research and learning at Cal

Berkeley Arts + Design was established to make the arts and design a fundamental part of the undergraduate journey at Cal, developing students’ creative skills and better preparing them for the future. Our goal is to increase student access to arts-oriented research and learning opportunities on campus through a range of resources, programs, and leadership opportunities that we offer. 

Our innovative flagship courses introduce students to diverse areas of practice across the visual arts, performance, literature, film, and design, as well as to arts and design resources available locally. Our annual creative careers networking event provides students with a safe, educational space to connect with professionals working across the creative and technical disciplines. Our Arts + Design Student Council helps shape our long-term goals and initiatives, and launches new projects to make UC Berkeley a more creatively accessible campus to all students.

  • $25 will fund community art supplies for students to use during workshops
