About Us

UCF Celebrates the Arts is an annual showcase featuring an interactive exhibition of student artworks in the areas of Visual and Performing Arts. In addition to the products and performances of the arts units, each year there are projects that demonstrate the arts vital role in innovation, communication and fostering creativity across all disciplines. The festival provides a platform to share with Orlando and the Central Florida region the collaboration that occurs among all the units at the University of Central Florida and also with our community partners. UCF’s commitment to interdisciplinary activities and partnerships is well established and the festival celebrates these relationships as it demonstrates the university’s strong positive impact in Central Florida and beyond.
