Studium is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization working to increase access to the arts and humanities. Founded in 2013, Studium cultivates knowledge in the community through educational programming, unique events, and innovative publishing. At its core, Studium is a space for education, fostering ideas from initial spark to realization as performance, community initiative, or publication. Studium reinforces a love of learning and inspires creative production.


At Studium, you can join a class on the importance of fiction, participate in a workshop on field recording, view a gallery exhibition by a renowned local artist, perform a new composition, or find a unique album and book crafted in our print lab.

We build bridges with audiences both locally and around the world, having hosted over 1,000 people at Studium and shipped publications across North America, Europe, and Asia. By making the arts and humanities more accessible, we create comprehensive systems of support for our artists and scholars.

Studium is run by a small collection of humanities PhDs, artists, community organizers, and printers. Dan Rudmann founded Studium while working in both academic and music publishing and earning his doctorate in language and literature from UT Austin. Our Creative Director is Eva Claycomb, Director of Education is Haylie Swenson, and Community Director is Catherine Naiser.
