Welcome to The Beat!
The Beat is your weekly arts digest at Harvard University. Sponsored by the Office for the Arts at Harvard (OFA), The Beat is distributed every Thursday of the academic year except recesses and exam periods.
The Beat runs on submissions: to submit current events (theater shows, lectures, exhibitions, workshops, etc.), ongoing events (long-term exhibitions), and opportunities to get involved (jobs, grants, competitions, etc.) click here. Submitted events will be placed directly on our Events Calendar. Please note: if your event is already ticketed through the Box Office, it will automatically appear on the Events Calendar (i.e. you do not have to fill out the form.)
Also be sure to visit the discount page for many student discounts for arts & culture in the Boston area.
