Chapters & Ambassadors: You are Never Far Away from CalArts!

Chapters connect and engage CalArtians around the world. You are always welcome to attend chapter programs, whether you're local, temporary resident, or visiting the region.

Created by alumnx in specific geographic regions, chapters meet, enjoy events together, and create, collaborate and connect. Alumnx who run chapters are called leaders, and each chapter has two leaders who co-chair the group.

For those alumnx wishing to represent the CalArtian community whose lifestyle, travel, career, etc. precludes them from committing to a Chapter, we have Alumnx Ambassadors who represent CalArts wherever their adventures take them, whenever they can.

If you would like to volunteer in your area by starting a new chapter, become an Ambassador, or if you would like to join the rockstar ranks of an existing chapter, contact the Alumnx Engagement Office at
