2019 Grant Awards

Each year students, faculty, staff and alumni of Brandeis respond to a call to artists engaged in visual and performing arts. The Office of the Arts awards grants to produce innovative new work for the Festival of the Arts that offers opportunities to create, participate, and learn about the arts. A jury of faculty, staff and students evaluates grant applications on the quality and innovation of the project, and the potential for broad involvement of the Brandeis community during the festival.
