About the Festival


ARTS FIRST can't happen without a team of amazing volunteers! If you are interested in being a part of ARTS FIRST 2017 and experiencing working at Harvard’s longest-running arts festival, please fill out our volunteer application. Volunteers help set up, clean up, greet audience members, hand out guides, and keep performance venues running smoothly. All volunteers will get a free ARTS FIRST t-shirt!


Participation deadlines for ARTS FIRST 2017 have passed. Check back in October for applications for participating in ARTS FIRST 2018.


Funding for your ARTS FIRST project is available through the OFA's Project Grant Program. Check back in October for the funding deadline for ARTS FIRST 2018.
