Our Sponsors: Sponsor an Event

Support from our Arts & Issues contributors has allowed us to present world-class performers and distinguished speakers for 34 seasons bringing valuable recognition to SIUE and the region. In addition, we are often able to provide exceptional educational experiences for our students, faculty and community by offering workshops and master classes with these visiting artists and speakers.
