Welcome to the annual ARTS FIRST Festival, which celebrates the artmaking of all members of the Harvard Community. This year, our virtual program, produced by the Office for the Arts at Harvard, welcomes artists and audiences worldwide to experience video performances by Harvard students, faculty and alumni/ae, presented in spaces on campus, outdoors around Cambridge and across the globe.

Join us April 19-30 for live events and dynamic student showcases celebrating a wide variety of music, dance, theater and additional art – plus three nights of conversations with past Harvard Arts Medalist recipients who are working professionals in their fields. Join us for this 11-day festival! See if you can spot your classmates, students, family members and favorite campus buildings and local landmarks in a series of events that cross continents, times zones, class years and art forms!

All the arts. All the world. All are welcome.
