CAPL Connects is a paid fellowship program and student-led activism coalition that embraces the diverse and unique voices of the CCA student body.
Weekly meetings are held to encourage discussions about current events and injustices. After the students have engaged, listened, and learned from one another they set out to create artwork/content to share on social media. This year we are partnering with local non-profits to take action for Social Justice. CAPL Connects Fellows grow with the knowledge and experience gained in the program and become engaged Art and Design Activists.
This opportunity is open to undergraduate and graduate students across all disciplines.
