CAP UCLA Executive Producer Council
The Executive Producer Council is CAP UCLA’s philanthropic leadership group that develops and contributes resources vital to the center’s programming and mission. The council comprises individuals who champion the creative development, presentation and public dialogue with contemporary performing artists by providing direct support for the center’s annual programming. They are engaged in the artistic and curatorial practices that inform the annual programs, long-term initiatives and collaborative planning efforts that stand at the heart of CAP UCLA’s mission and public purpose.

Design for Sharing (DFS) Council
The Design for Sharing Council is a group of dedicated volunteers who help to resource the programs of Design for Sharing. DFS is CAP UCLA’s free K–12 arts education program. Since 1969 DFS has been making the performing arts at UCLA an accessible and inspirational part of children’s lives. Each year, thousands of students from public schools across Los Angeles participate in our interactive and educational arts experiences, engaging with artists and exploring their own creativity through performances, workshops or in-class residency activities.
