As a hub for an interdisciplinary endeavor on the arts, the Center for Creativity
and the Arts (CCA) is focused on linking theory to practice, inspire innovation, inquiry,
collaboration, and dialog across disciplines, cultures, industries, and global perspectives.
CCA believes that by creating programming that focuses on topics associated with the Central Valley and everyday life, the arts can stimulate public engagement through inquiry, discussion, and understanding.
The Center strives to advance the capacity of creativity and inspire intellectual debate and engagement. Each year, CCA explores a common theme that addresses a complex issue facing our society. Though art exhibitions, films, lectures, debates, musical performances, and theatrical performances, the theme is approached from a cross-disciplinary perspective garnering expertise and stimulating examination from faculty and students from a variety of academic and professional disciplines at Fresno State.
Recognizing that artists contribute to transforming the intellectual life of the university and the Central Valley, CCA serves as a catalyst for open, dynamic discussions of community-relevant topics that are illuminated by artistic programming.
