Student Ambassadors for the Arts (SAFTA)

SAFTA (Student Ambassadors for the Arts) is a student-led organization of dedicated student arts ambassadors sponsored by Cal Performances. SAFTA connects students to world-class performances through special events like student night-out parties, pop-up concerts, and more, inviting students to make the performing arts an essential part of their UC Berkeley experience.
