In order to cater to the many tastes of the campus, ASPB is organized into the CONCERTS, FILMS & LECTURES, CONTEMPORARY CULTURE, SPECIAL EVENTS and MARKETING Divisions. We are always looking for student feedback for our events. Email ASPB at aspb@ucr.edu or stop by our office anytime between 9am – 5pm, Monday – Friday (HUB 111, located next to the C-Store and across from the ATMs/The Exchange). We hope to see you at our events!

 CC

Contemporary Culture

The Contemporary Culture division explores current worldly ideas and concepts through entertainment: seeking to educate students by hosting events that facilitate both unusual and pertinent conversations between people with different perspectives and experiences. This division sheds light upon all kinds of cultures found in our society and identifies how their interactions are relevant in the world and to students at UCR. Events such as Rʼ Movement, Winter SOULstice, Arts Walk, and More Than Spoken Word are examples of how this division works to challenge the students of UCR by exposing them to alternative styles of entertainment.
