Every summer for 36 years, CSU Summer Arts has assembled dozens of the world’s top creatives to be a part of our annual Festival — to perform and to teach our students. For the festival, which is open to the community, we produce more than 30 live events each summer, spanning the spectrum of dance, media, music, theatre, visual art & design, and writing.
CSU Summer Arts will be hosted by Fresno State in Fresno, California, through the 2023 season.
