MAKE ART/STOP AIDS is an initiative of the UCLA Art & Global Health Center, as well as other partnering groups around the world, including the Art & Global Health Center Africa. We're founded on the principle that artists are an essential part of anti-AIDS efforts. Artists are able to shape transformative insights and possibilities that literally redirect how people think and act.
The UCLA Art & Global Health Center is a part of the Department of World Arts & Cultures/Dance at the UCLA School of the Arts & Architecture.
The UCLA Department of World Arts and Cultures/Dance is committed to a cross-cultural understanding through the arts. Within the department, students can choose between two concentrations: World Arts and Cultures or Dance. The department is designed for self-motivated students who want to study the arts in global and local contexts. An internationally renowned faculty provides fresh approaches to scholarship and arts practice. Our project is interdisciplinary. Inclusivity is our goal. Students are encouraged to take advantage of resources across campus and in greater Los Angeles, even as they learn from each other.
