  What is UArts Day? 
UArts Day is a campus-wide celebration and challenge that builds community, expands our connections to Philadelphia and strengthens the creative and professional skills of our students. In 2018, more than 30 alumni and 18 community partners worked with us connecting our students to creative Philadelphia. 

 What happens on UArts Day? 
Students engage in city-orienting, professional practice and collaborative cross-departmental events. This years activities include a line-up of more than 50 city-wide challenges, workshops, field trips and engagements.

We celebrate our community from 4-7pm with the UArts Day Block Party!

Student Events 
All programming for UArts Day will be listed on the UArts App by September 23. Students must download the UArts App to complete activities during UArts Day. 

Students can download the app here: 

Apple iTunes App Store -  UArts App

Android Google Play Store - UArts App

Any student with issues downloading the app should email studentaffairs@uarts.edu for assistance.

 I'm an alum - how can I get involved? 
We invite alumni to host a UArts Day Activity, allowing students to meet successful alumni throughout Philadelphia. These activities can take a variety of formats from drop-in studio visits and facility tours, to informal meet-and-greets at sites of relevance throughout the city. These activities provide our students with the opportunity to meet successful alum face-to-face while also visiting a new venue, cultural site or part of the city. Interested? Email us at uartsday@uarts.edu.

 I'm a community partner - how can I get involved? 
In 2018, we partnered with creative organizations like the American Poetry Review, Quirk Publishing, and the Ritz Theaters that hosted our students for site-visits. We also worked with 6 local food trucks for our block party celebration. If you're interested in partnering to host our students, or are interested in sponsoring a component of our celebration, we would love to hear from you. Email us at uartsday@uarts.edu.
