UCSD Students

Through partnerships with academic departments, faculty, and local organizations, we offer meaningful engagement programs that connect our artists to audiences of all ages in the most inspiring and transformative ways.

ArtPower offers opportunities for those future artists among us to get personal instruction from some of the best in their field. Taught by guest musicians, dancers, and choreographers, master classes provide that spark of inspiration to continue on the path to artistic excellence. ArtPower is proud to collaborate with the UC San Diego Department of Theatre and Dance and Department of Music.

Participation is limited to UCSD students.


ArtPower engages the world’s leading artists to enrich campus life by participating in extended residencies in collaboration with diverse campus departments. Whether artists are leading a panel, acting as visiting faculty, giving a series of workshops, or co-creating work with young artists, our Innovators-in-Residence leave a lasting impact on students of all majors. We are thrilled to connect students to Ranky Tanky, Yemen Blues, and Aeolus Quartet—among other creative innovators—in the 2017–18 season.

We recognize students’ budgets can be tight, so we make sure our performances are not only fantastic, but also very affordable. Tickets are just $9 for UC San Diego students—and it’s even further discounted during Week One of every quarter, at just $5*! It’s just another benefit of being part of this great university. *Does not apply to special events.

ArtPower works with a bright team of undergraduate student interns during the academic year, teaching them skills in arts marketing, outreach, curating, and production. These future professionals learn first-hand what it takes to execute a performing arts season with flair!
