It only takes a little to make a BIG impact.
Your gift of any amount, is an investment in the future of Arts education at UCI.
Due to the many challenges surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, the UCI Claire Trevor School of the Arts (CTSA) has experienced significant financial losses from cancelled performances and programs. CTSA has had to cancel 140 performances for spring and summer, and has experienced over $100,000 in lost ticket revenue, which typically supports each department’s pedagogical and research programs. Without this ticket revenue, our faculty are facing a daunting challenge to maintain budgets that are already strained to support their essential work.
With your help, we can bridge the gap and continue to foster a vibrant community of students committed to creative research in Art, Dance, Drama, and Music. Funds raised today will provide vital operational support for programs that shape the next generation of creative leaders such as:
- Annual Musicals, which provides immersive learning experiences in Drama coursework.
- MFA Thesis Exhibitions, a pivotal threshold for MFA students in the Department of Art.
- Dance Visions, in which student dancers work with choreographers at the Barclay Theatre.
- Symphonic orchestra performances which prepare students for professional careers in music.
The art world is at a crossroads. We are ready to meet the challenges and opportunities ahead. But we need your support. As the leading campus in the nation providing access to all qualified students, no matter what their background, our students rely on the generous support of donors, like you.
Together—in just one day!—we can continue to give students these experiences and help inspire the next generation of citizen artists, because it only takes a little to make a BIG IMPACT!
