The School of the Arts fosters a learning community of artists, scholars, teachers, and professionals. Our goal is to empower Emersonians to create art that inspires change. We believe the arts are much more than a means of creative self-expression: The arts are about dialogue, engagement, interaction, and making connections. 

Putting this philosophy into practice, we invite you to Engage with the Arts—an event series—and to join the conversation. This series is for donors, alumni, and friends who care deeply about the arts, who understand their importance in the world, and who are interested in how we collectively interpret and navigate artistic events today and in the future.
