Cal Performances is the largest performing arts presenter on the West Coast and is considered one of the finest university presenters in the country. Its annual season of 100 performances of world music and dance, theater, opera, jazz, and classical music in the 2,000-seat Zellerbach Hall attracts an audience of 130,000. Cal Performances’ education and community outreach programs continue to flourish—including its "Fall Free for All!," a day of free performances that attracts more than 20,000 attendees—while the commissioning of new works indicates the organization’s growing contributions as a producer. Renewed support would enable Cal Performances to continue to be an iconic cultural institution.

Grants to this Grantee
for the Center for Long-Term Cybersecurity
A grant to the University of California at Berkeley will support the ongoing work of the Center for Long-Term Cybersecurity, the home of this research and engagement at the university. The center focuses on both the “cyber” and “security” components of cybersecurity, grounding efforts in a robust, flexible, and evolving understanding of the “possibility” space of cybersecurity. Research will focus on possible security scenarios and explore the technical, political, and economic intersection of these potential futures. The aim of this approach is to foster interdisciplinary collaboration within the center as well as to add diversity to the cybersecurity conversation. The center brings together academics from the School of Information, the School of Law, Computer Science, the Goldman School of Public Policy, and the College of Engineering, among others. It also engages external stakeholders in all facets of this work, including in outreach efforts. (Strategy: Talent Pipeline)
