Arts and Design Initiative

Support the Arts + Design Initiative, empowering every UC Berkeley student to develop creative competencies to be fully engaged citizens in a rapidly changing world.

Berkeley Arts + Design features, fortifies, and mobilizes existing excellence in creative discovery at UC Berkeley, while fostering dynamic collaboration, education, innovation, and public access across all arts and design fields, on campus and in public life. We promote creative discovery for the greater good.

  • Innovative multidisciplinary educational programs in creative discovery, from gateway courses to specialized courses in all creative fields.
  • Powerhouse public programs that bring together the world’s leading artists and thought leaders for our students and our community.
  • Student engagement and arts access programs that increase and deepen students’ exposure to the arts.
  • New digital platforms that help students navigate the vast opportunities of our creative landscape across the university—from public art maps, to student clubs, to creative capstone achievements.
