This spring, faculty and students from departments and programs
across campus will come together to host the
Spring Festival for the Arts@Tufts. The four-day interdisciplinary festival, to be held
April 16-19, celebrates the rich and vibrant arts community at
Tufts. Comprising of 24 events, the festival will feature the work
of Tufts students, faculty, and alumni, and spans a wide array of
disciplines and talents, including a Kiniwe (African drumming and
dance) performance, screenings of new films, and a newly-reimagined
production of Shakespeare's Richard III. The weekend event will also
include gallery exhibitions, faculty roundtables, student research
and performance symposiums, and an interactive music engineering
exhibit offering hands-on exploration of student-created instruments
and musical iPad apps.
The festival is co-sponsored by the Departments of Drama and Dance, Music, and Art History, along with the communications and media studies program and creative writing programs, as well as the Experimental College, the Center for the Humanities at Tufts, The Tufts University Art Gallery, the AS&E Diversity Fund, the Granoff Music Fund and the Office of the Dean of Arts and Sciences.
