As UCF Celebrates the Arts embarks upon its fifth year, the festival Steering Committee is looking to showcase the best from UCF students and faculty and bring attention to our year-round activities on campus and in the community. The anticipated event dates are April 5-14, 2019.

The committee is now seeking proposals for innovative and collaborative arts activities for inclusion in the 2019 festival. The ideas for these events can come out of classes; outside projects by faculty, students or alumni; or collaborative works associated with the university. Deadline for proposal submissions is Friday, September 21, 2018, at 5 p.m. Apply at

Some events are already on the schedule and may be used for inspiration. Proposals that tie into the scheduled events may be given additional consideration. 2019 events include:

  • Titanic, a musical by Maury Yeston
  • A concert by the Flying Horse Big Band and guests
  • The NEA Big Read featuring “Station Eleven” by Emily St. John Mandel
  • The National Young Composers Challenge and Emerging Composers Challenge
  • A new musical that takes place in Puerto Rico during a hurricane

Central to the event’s mission is:

  • Showcasing the work and talents of students and faculty from UCF and the College of Arts & Humanities
  • Presenting events that are interdisciplinary within or beyond the walls of CAH
  • Presenting 1-3 key events that are large in scope, that will attract attention nationally or regionally and will be major audience draws
  • Presenting innovative, high-quality events and happenings that are unexpected, new or out-of-the-box
