The Creative Discovery Fellows Program - Featured Student Projects

The Creative Discovery Fellows (CDF) program supports instructors and students to exercise their creativity in ways that challenge existing assumptions, beliefs, and power structures; that propel discovery and meaningful self-reflection; and that contribute to and strengthen Berkeley's mission as a public institution.

The creative work produced by students in the courses supported by the Creative Discovery Fellows Program represent a wide range of disciplines, formats, skill levels, audiences, intentions, instructional goals, and life experiences. Not all work is intended for public dissemination, but all of it is meaningful in one way or another to the student designers and community members involved in the creation. Below is a selection of student projects that have been shared with us to showcase the work supported by the program. Some are individual projects, some are group based. These are used with permission. All rights are reserved by their creators.
