– A Message from the Chair –

I’ve been blessed with many opportunities being part of the Arts, Media and Culture Department at UTSC, and one of them is being in the Music and Culture program. It is where I can share and learn in an artistic and creative environment. A place where I can learn about the diversity of the world we live in.

Entering my third year of studies here at UTSC, the passion and dedication of the Arts, Culture and Media students, staff and faculty have been incredibly supportive and amazing. There are so many wonderful opportunities to become a part of and to express your creative nature, in which you will gain enhanced skills and experience.

ARTSA is here to help you with exactly that. Our purpose as the Official Department Student Association (DSA) of the UTSC Arts, Culture and Media Studies Department is as follows;

First, ARTSA hopes to connect students with opportunities to get involved – both on campus, and in the broader Arts, Culture and Media Community in the GTA. We want to support creative and artistic expression here at the UTSC.  Secondly, we work to build relationships across disciplines. We hope to provide students with resources and mentor guidance for academic and career advancement. Finally, we act as your voice with the faculty and staff of the Arts, Culture and Media Department. If you have any questions, concerns, or comments about your experience here at UTSC, let us know.

The Arts communicate and speak to us in ways that teach literacy and enhance our lives. We must continue to find a place for arts programs and partnerships not only for what it teaches students about the Arts, but for what it teaches us all about the world we live in.
