Call to Artists

Are you a Brandeis student, faculty member, or staff member with an idea for the Festival of the Arts?

Commemorating the 100th anniversary of Louis D. Brandeis' appointment to the U.S. Supreme Court, we are especially interested in projects that engage with the legacy of his tenure. This could include, but is not limited to:

• Citizenship and the Economy
• Privacy, Technology and the Modern Self
• Expanding Diversity
• Free Speech and Participation in a Democracy
• The Artist as Citizen

Apply here.

Incomplete applications and applications received after January 19, 2016 will not be considered.

You will be notified of the jury's decision by mid-February 2016.

Theater, music, visual art, dance, film and video -- we welcome proposals of all kinds. 

However, a grant is not necessary to participate in the Festival. Here's how you can still participate:

1. Apply to give a 20-minute performance on the afternoon of Sunday, April 17 in select locations on lower campus. Performances need to be family friendly and require minimal technical support. Apply here by February 12. These performances are produced by the Office of the Arts.

2. Are you producing your own event? Arts events on campus that take place on campus between April 14 - 17 may be included in official Festival publicity. Apply here by February 23.

3. If you would like to hold an event at Light of Reason, the public artwork outside the Rose Art Museum, please submit a Light of Reason application in addition to one of the above forms.
