The Center for Arts Entrepreneurship
Under the leadership of Steve Wilson, chair of the Department of Music, and Zuill Bailey, Grammy Award winning cellist and artistic director, the Center for Arts Entrepreneurship (CAE), has been designed to prepare music and other creative arts students for successful careers in the 21st century.
Opening in fall 2017 on the UTEP campus, this exciting new center was created by UTEP and El Paso Pro-Musica to engage students in projects and workshops geared toward resume enhancement, creating digital portfolios, audience development, and performance opportunities.
In 2017-18, the center will offer a series of weeklong artist-in-residence workshops with world-renowned musicians that will allow UTEP music students to have up-close, meaningful interactions with them.
The center will also host workshops on working with the media and job interviewing, and will sponsor innovation grants to support students’ capstone projects.
