2019 Institute FAQ

Please see below for key information related to this year's Institute and answers to some of the questions we anticipate fielding in advance! For other questions, concerns, or clarifications, please reach out to us through our contact form or write to Sabrina Klein, Director of Artistic Literacy at Cal Performances: sklein@calperformances.org.

Is there a tuition or fee for attending the Institute? +

No! Thanks to generous support, attendance at the 2019 Institute is completely free to all registrants and includes access to all scheduled events and sessions.

Is it necessary to attend all three days of the institute? +

Yes. Because our events are scaffolded to provide the greatest depth of connection between participants and in response to each session, we strongly encourage you only to register if you feel able and willing to attend all sessions. While we would not want to turn away anyone who would feel nurtured by attending just one or two days or sessions, the Institute is designed for immersive learning.

Will meals be provided? +

You will be on your own for most meals, but we will be providing light refreshments at some events and the option of purchasing a catered lunch on Thursday and Friday. If you choose the catered lunch option, be sure to indicate your dietary preferences as you fill out your online registration form. Lunch payments will be collected in cash or by check during the institute itself, at our registration desk.

We will also be providing a list of local eateries and other social venues for those who feel like wandering!

Are there scholarships available for transportation and lodging? +

Unfortunately, we are not able to offer funding for travel or lodging at this time. However, we encourage those with institutional affiliations to seek financial support and can provide registration and attendance documentation as necessary.

Can you recommend places to stay in Berkeley? +

Yes! We will update this space shortly with links and recommendations for lodging near campus.
