The Center for Innovation, Research, and Creativity in the Arts (CIRCA) is an interdisciplinary center of the College of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences at UMBC. Its mission is to inspire and promote inquiry and experimentation in and across the arts. CIRCA supports innovative project-based research in the Arts by faculty, students, and visiting scholars, and promotes the development of interdisciplinary and collaborative projects that advance the Arts in an environment of emerging technologies.

CIRCA is committed to enhancing the local, national, and global reputation of UMBC in the Arts, and will emphasize and augment the role of the Arts in UMBC’s research mission through lectures, performances, exhibitions, internships, symposia, and other types of scholarly engagement and production.
