The Cultural Events division of the Office of Cultural Events & Special Academic Programs at UNC Asheville works to extend classroom learning by providing a wide array of diverse programs that enrich, educate and entertain our students, campus community and the community-at-large. Our presentations feature world-class, professional performing artists and major speakers.
The Office of Cultural Events presents 5 to 9 major touring performing artists between September and April. We also support many other campus arts performances and presentations throughout the year and often collaborate with other area arts venues and presenters.
Our programs are designed to complement the liberal arts course of study for our undergraduate students by providing arts experiences they may not see anywhere else in Asheville.
Nearly all our offerings will have campus and/or community lectures and demonstrations, pre- or post-performance discussions, workshops and open rehearsals. These are extra chances to meet these influential artists and speakers up close and personal and learn more about how and why they do what they do.
We are a member of the NC Presenters Consortium. The 150 member venues of the NC Presenters Consortium and calendars of their events may be visited at www.ncpresenters.org.
Thanks to our Season Sponsors
