The DeBartolo Performing Arts Center welcomes the opportunity to partner or co-sponsor public events with University of Notre Dame academic units.  Working together, we can provide immersive experiences through visiting artists and cinematic arts for our students, faculty, staff and community.

Each academic year, the center presents diverse artists and art forms from around the world encompassing performances in music, dance and theater.

Likewise, the Browning Cinema screens films that are innovative, entertaining, educational and challenging.

Partnerships and co-sponsored examples include:

The Department of Film, Television, and Theatre. University students have engaged with artists including Ed Asner, Sterlin Harjo, Tim Robbins, Claire Denis and Larry Miller for once-in-a-lifetime opportunities for students to learn from some of the industries leading actors, producers and filmmakers.

Shakespeare at Notre Dame. Shakespeare at Notre Dame is a program that recognizes the centrality of the study of Shakespeare in humanistic pedagogy at the University of Notre Dame. The center is proud to host performances and film series presented throughout the year.
