Brandeis students, staff, faculty and alumni are invited to create small gifts of art in any form--and in any quantity--to give to other Brandeisians. The gift may be produced in multiples: for example, stickers based on an orginal drawing, or prints of a photograph. Collaborations are welcome and the gift can come from a student club or department.
Performances, conceptual or ephemeral art, such as:
Make a list of the materials you need to make your gift, with the approximate costs.

If you can estimate shipping costs, please include them.
We are here to help! If you’re not sure how to put together your budget, please email Ingrid Schorr, email@example.com.
This is the fun part!
We will create a website with a virtual catalog of available gifts. Members of the Brandeis community may request a specific gift or ask for a surprise.
In April (date tba), you will deliver or mail your finished gifts to the Arts Engagement office (we will pay for postage).
Gift recipients living off-campus will receive their gift in the mail. People living outside the United States may choose a gift that can be sent digitally.
On-campus participants will meet up with their gift giver in a socially distanced setting, coordinated by Arts Engagement. There will be pop-up gift giveaways as well for people who didn’t sign up, but would like a gift.
We welcome your ideas for how to present the gifts!
