Artmaking in the Houses

Artmaking is everywhere at Harvard including wherever you live: On campus and beyond. The Office for the Arts offers many opportunities to make, discover and enjoy the arts. We work with Faculty Deans and students to support these opportunities through a variety of services including (but not limited to!) the following areas.

Visual Arts

  • develop virtual and hands-on programming
  • guide and partner on programming with visiting artists and instructors for virtual workshops
  • provide material for artmaking projects


  • provide support for virtual productions including advice on technology, best practices, rights, finance, budgeting and marketing
  • mentor House residents to develop projects and visiting artist programming

Guest Artists

  • collaborate on designing residencies, shorter visits, content and student involvement
  • advise on agents/managers, letters of agreement, honoraria and itineraries

The Office for the Arts is committed to supporting artmaking for all students within the current safety guidelines. We also look forward to re-entering physical spaces and to continue artmaking, building community and providing even more resources once everyone is back on campus together again.
