Gluck Fellow Programs

The Gluck Fellows Program of the Arts at UC Riverside brings talented UCR students into the most underserved areas of the Riverside community to provide free performance and arts education experiences.  Outreach efforts are concentrated in schools, particularly elementary.  Visits to eldercare homes bring enjoyment to those who ordinarily would not have access to live art experiences due to limited mobility.  Performances and workshops in the community at museums and libraries increases accessibility for a broader audience, especially to those individuals not normally able to attend performances on the UC Riverside campus. 

Gluck Fellow programs are organized into three categories and paired with the best locations: Performance Ensembles, including the Theatre Improv Troupe, Contemporary Dance Ensemble, and music ensembles, perform in Community Centers or school assemblies; Classroom Fellow Workshops, where Fellows develop a hands-on curriculum related to their specialization work designed for a classroom environment. Some Classroom Fellows are invited as ASK Residents (Artist Spark Knowledge) where they spend their entire fellowship at one site.  GluckGlobal Fellows prepare media like films, photos and Classroom Online Resources for the internet either with the UCR VRC or for GluckTV on YouTube.

Gluck Fellows also offer local Family Learning events where a fellowship team will immerse participants in new arts activities, such as painting with light or making personalized tote bags, as a entry-point into ongoing art exhibitions. Gluck Fellows offer family learning activities at UCR's ARTSblock in downtown Riverside during the city’s monthly First Sunday and First Thursday ARTSwalk events.

The myriad of arts programming the Gluck Fellows Program has brought to the Riverside Community since 1996 - more than 20 years - is driven by a core belief that open access to the arts is one of the fundamental components of healthy communities. The division of our programs into three different categories, each suited to specific types of learning-opportunities within the community, reflects our efforts to reach the largest and most diverse number of participants in the locations where exposure to the arts is most required and appropriate.
