It’s November—you know, that month when the skies get ominous and you pull out your umbrella, boots and sweaters as the rain sets in for real.

In B.C., when the weather gets grey outside, life indoors has to get more interesting—and that usually means music, theatre, movies and art.

Fortunately, this month at Capilano University, it’s all fine and applied arts, all month. Have you been wondering if a career in entertainment management is for you? Or are you itching to try your hand behind the camera or at an easel? Perhaps you’d rather be performing onstage as a musician, actor or dancer.

With six departments in the Faculty of Fine & Applied Arts hosting open houses in November, this is the month to check out all of these opportunities at Cap!

The Music Diploma opens its doors to prospective students on November 6. Audit classes and end the day listening to a Capilano University Singers rehearsal!

Jazz Studies welcomes interested students on November 10. Take in Jazz History and Conducting courses, and sit in on open rehearsals with Jared Burrows and C Band as well as Dave Robbins and the Rhythmic Music Ensemble.

Learn about operations and event services in a lab setting at the Arts & Entertainment Management open house on November 12.

If it’s a life on stage you’re seeking, Theatre programs open their doors on November 12 as well. Take in acting, movement and voice courses and end the day watching a rehearsal of Treasure Island!

What does it mean to be an effective visual communicator? Find out on November 14 at the IDEA School of Design open studio day. Bring a portfolio, several pieces of artwork or a sketchbook for a friendly faculty critique.

If it’s the silver screen you’re wanting, the Bosa Centre for Film and Animation welcomes prospective students on November 28. Tour the state-of-the-art Bosa Centre and learn about Motion Picture Arts programs, 2D animation, 3D animation for film and games, costuming, digital visual effects, documentary and Indigenous Independent Digital Filmmaking.

Finally, November 23 is Explore Capilano night. Learn about all the university’s programs in a general information night, meet faculty and ask your financial aid and admissions questions.
