Arts Under The Stars: Channels Island's Annual Integrative Extravaganza

Arts Under The Stars is a campus wide research and creative performance event that brings the entire campus and community together. Subjects ranging from transgender bullying, bird migration, cancer cells, the Santa Rosa Island research station, and feminist mythology have all been presented as multi-media spectacles that speak to the heart and mind. Student and faculty researchers, creators, performers, and visual artists collaborate to bring campus, regional, and global issues to life.

For the past three years, AUTS has been on the forefront of partnering performance with digital technology. Mobile device programs offered in English and Spanish, augmented reality scavenger hunts, and an interactive website have all been student driven innovations reflecting our culture, green movement, and untethering capabilities.
