ENGAGE Studio Partners

The ENGAGE at CCA initiative, coordinated by the Center for Art and Public Life, connects CCA coursework with local and extended communities and experts for project-based learning experiences and community outreach.

Activated across academic programs, ENGAGE at CCA serves as a hub to connect interested faculty and students to community partners and relevant outside experts.

Senior Studio Practice 5

Working with the Alameda County Community Food Bank CCA students address design issues raised by the operations and interaction of several different partners including Interior Design students at CCA, ACCFB staff, volunteers, and their partner agencies as well as the public they support.
