Creativity, talent, vision, stage presence.

Whatever you call it, you know you have it. And whether you want to explore your creativity through design and illustration, bring stories to life through film or live theatre, or move people with music, a career in the creative arts isn’t just a job. It’s who you are.

With programs in design, motion picture arts, theatre, music, along with arts and entertainment management, Capilano University’s Faculty of Fine and Applied Arts is home to an incredibly talented creative community, as well as state-of-the-art studios and facilities.
