The University of Alaska, Fairbanks’ Collaborative Arts Council is an organization made up of faculty from music, art, theater, film, and creative writing. Our aim is to support the creative endeavors of students, staff, and faculty with an integrative approach focused on collaboration, communication, and collective organization in the arts. We believe that through working with peers in new disciplines, artists are challenged and inspired in ways that promote their development, and that promote the development of their discipline.
