UCA Students for the Arts comprises students who advocate for the advancement and promotion of the arts, arts education, and the creative economy in Arkansas. Our Mission is to foster a cross disciplinary community of students who share a love for Art. Serving as the campus arm of Arkansans for the Arts, itself a subgroup of Americans for the Arts, UCA’s student chapter is the first of its kind in the nation. We began in the spring of 2019. Students will learn how to advocate for local, state, and national legislative initiatives that affect the art economy. In addition to advocating we will be hosting the UCA Gallery Downtown during Arts Fest this year, October 5th from 6pm- 10pm. Our meetings are the first and third Tuesdays of every month at 5:30 pm. Meeting locations vary from month to month. If you would like to know how to be a part of UCA Students for the Arts, please join us at our meetings and follow us on Cub Connect, Facebook, and Instagram.
