We seek to inspire meaningful, lifelong connections and engagement across our community of artists and external audiences to support and achieve CalArts’ mission - to transform ourselves, each other, and the world. Through the design, development, and implementation of strategic communications that inform, educate, and build support, we advance the Institute's vision and goals as articulated in the 2020 Strategic Framework.
