Our Goals

Launched in 2016, the Brown Arts Initiative (BAI) builds on over a decade of work fostered by the Creative Arts Council and represents the full breadth of the performing, literary, and visual arts at Brown. The goals of the Brown Arts Initiative are:

  • To expand Brown’s legacy of enriching tradition by supporting all that is experimental, forward-thinking and cutting-edge in the arts.
  • To facilitate greater opportunity for collaboration across arts departments, among artists, with other academic fields, and with external partners locally, nationally and globally.
  • To enhance opportunities for engaged, activist artists and scholars whose work responds to contemporary issues.
