About Emerson

Arts & Culture

Emerson College lifts up diverse voices and inspires audiences through its cultural organizations.

Emerson is home to a variety of cultural organizations dedicated to presenting diverse and innovative work in the fields of theater, film, visual art, literature, and music.

Staff, faculty, and students create and execute programming and content for three theaters, a film screening room, a virtual gathering space for theater professionals, two art galleries, a public art program, a literary journal and blog, a radio station, and a seasonal outdoor performance space.

Although the organizations have different artistic missions, they all share a steadfast commitment to civic engagement in the Greater Boston area and beyond.


ArtsEmerson invites groundbreaking artists from around the world to perform contemporary theater, dance, music, and opera on its stages.

Public Art Think Tank

Aligned with the College’s commitment to civic engagement, the Public Art Think Tank supports artworks that involve audiences in discourse about important societal issues such as those related to social justice.
