Creative Collective

New LLC for 2019-2020: The Creative Collective

We are the storytellers, the music-makers, poets, artists, designers, movers, and dreamers. Through creativity we interpret and express the world around us and within ourselves, making connections that bring our campus community together.

As members of this community, residents are encouraged to build relationships, attend arts events and programming for creators, and expand and explore their artistic horizons on the UCLA campus and beyond. All students, regardless of artistic background or major, are invited to take part in an engaging and vibrant floor that explores the broad meaning of art and creativity and their impact in society.
