UCSD will host arts conference


Registration is under way for the fourth annual University of California system-wide UCIRA State of the Arts Conference, Nov. 18-21 at UCSD’s Conrad Prebys Music Center.

“Future Tense: Alternative Arts and Economies in the University,” will consider the encroaching privatization of public education and the complex mix of economic, cultural and social forces placing pressure on the status of the arts within the research university, as well as the notion of the university itself.

The conference includes a welcome reception, social networking dinners, keynote speakers, presenters, performers, panels, and the opportunity to attend music and theater performances.
