Welcome to the Brown Arts Initiative


The Brown Arts Initiative (BAI) seeks to cultivate creative expression and foster an interdisciplinary environment where faculty and students learn from one another and from artists and scholars in a wide range of fields across the campus and around the world. Taking full advantage of the University’s Open Curriculum, the BAI builds on Brown’s reputation as a destination for arts exploration, contributing to cultural enterprise through the integration of theory and practice, with an emphasis on innovation and discovery that results from rigorous artmaking and experimentation.

The health and safety of the Brown community continues to be Brown University’s highest priority. Based on evolving information about the spread of COVID-19 across the country and the world, Brown University has moved academic instruction for all undergraduate and graduate students to remote learning effective March 30, and has canceled all public events for the remainder of the semester. 

We have enjoyed welcoming you to our spaces this last year, and look forward to welcoming you back in September with all new programming.
