Arts & culture

Culture and the creative arts help us make sense of the world and ourselves. As we become increasingly aware of cultural diversity on a regional, national and global scale, we turn to the arts for common ground. 

UVic’s commitment to arts and culture programming make this a natural place for students who want to explore and celebrate cultural differences and interactions.
