ArtsEmerson: The World On Stage

For Our Community

ArtsEmerson: The World On Stage is central to the greater Boston cultural community, providing a range of tools and resources. 

The World On Stage. ArtsEmerson brings many of the world’s legendary and pioneering artists to Boston, presenting work that won’t be seen elsewhere in New England. In doing so, our expectations are shattered, our culture is enriched, and our horizons expand. 

Enrichment Events. Most performance residencies offer windows into the creative work, the artists, and the art forms. "Extras" including workshops, lectures, master classes, and demonstrations involving the artists on tour and like-minded New England professionals, as well as related film screenings and performances, give audiences unique insights and discussion points. 

Artists in Our Midst. Creativity inspires growth. By hosting artistic developmental residencies, ArtsEmerson stimulates our creative communities, engages with New England cultural leaders and arts groups, encourages artistic collaborations, and stimulates our creative standards. Members experience behind-the-scenes events and “sneak peeks” at the creative process for new works that may change the way we view theater.
