Scripps Live Arts
Scripps Live Arts strives to bring local musicians and artists to Scripps' campus. We are committed to bringing female-fronted artists/musicians/bands that have a non-normative sound or image to the Claremont Colleges. We firmly believe in making our shows free and fully accessible to Scripps students as well as the greater Claremont community. In the past SLA has planned shows, co-sponsored music festivals on campus, run workshops about women in the music industry and created opportunities for student artists to perform at open mics.
Weekly meetings on Sundays in which we discuss upcoming events, who needs to be contacted, if the venue has been reserved, how to promote the event via posters and social media, etc. The goal is to plan and organize engaging events on campus that provide an alternative social space for students of the 5Cs. After each event we assess what went well and what could be improved upon to take note for the next upcoming event.
Representing under-represented artists in the music industry, supporting women in music, collaborating with other organizations that have a similar mission (Gal Palace in Los Angeles), providing a welcome and comfortable environment for individuals to express themselves in new ways (through collaborating with various groups at the 5Cs as well)
