Gluck Fellows 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 and music ensembles, perform in Community Centers or school assemblies; Individual Fellow Workshops, where Fellows develop a hands-on curriculum related to their specialization work designed for a classroom environment; and Team-Taught Camps 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 team-taught family learning activities at UCR's ARTSblock in downtown Riverside during the city’s monthly Family Funday on First Sunday and First Thursday ARTSwalk events.

The myriad of arts programming the Gluck Fellows Program has brought to the Riverside Community for 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.
