The Arts & Issues series brings artistic excellence to the SIUE campus through an eclectic blend of speakers and performers.
For more than 28 years, SIUE’s Arts & Issues series has showcased some of the world’s finest artists. Each season, thought-provoking speakers inspire people of all ages and backgrounds. Thanks to the underwriting of SIUE, corporations, foundations and individual donors, tickets are often discounted by as much as 75 percent.
Arts & Issues is tied to the academic mission of the University and offers unique opportunities for students and the community to engage with performers and speakers through master classes and special sessions. Whether you are interested in music, theater and dance, or science, literature and politics, Arts & Issues offers an exceptional mix of inspiring entertainment that enriches the lives of our students, faculty and staff, and our friends in the community.
