Perform & Participate



The application for participating in ARTS FIRST 2021 will be posted here in October.


ARTS FIRST can't happen without a team of amazing volunteers! You can apply to volunteer for ARTS FIRST 2021 in October if you are interested in being a part of ARTS FIRST and experiencing working at Harvard’s longest-running arts festival. 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!


Funding for your ARTS FIRST project is available through the OFA's Project Grant Program. The deadline for Spring 2021 Project Grants will be posted in the fall.
