EMERGING SCHOLARS PROGRAM 2019-09-06T20:42:49+00:00

The Emerging Scholars Program (ESP) brings together recent graduates in the disciplines of Fine Arts, Humanities, Social Sciences and Environmental Design disciplines whose work explores gender identity and issues relevant to queer and trans people of color with Bay Area non-profit, community based arts and social service organizations for a series of conversations that will bring community perspective to their work and develop a network of queer scholars and community partners to foster collaborative research, workshops and cultural events that will enrich the lives of the queer community. This program is being organized by the Queer Cultural Center in partnership with California College of the Arts and UC Berkeley’s College of Environmental Design.
