Involving students in the study of culture, identity and diversity through artistic expression

We believe in the power of arts to transform. Our mission is to create, support, and advance powerful, collaborative, and transformative arts practice and arts leadership.

Art Is My Occupation

Art is My Occupation is an interdepartmental collaborative program that empowers students to explore their personal and artistic identities, connects them to professional creatives, teaches them valuable skills necessary for working in the industry, and provides them with career guidance and resources. Through our programs, events and classes, we are preparing the next generation of diverse leaders in the arts.
