Programs: Introduction

The Stanford Arts Institute is a nexus for interdisciplinary campus-wide arts programming that engages and supports faculty and students arts activities in the classroom, in the dorms, and off campus.

Stanford Arts Institute programs showcase the tremendous and varied talent based in Stanford University – music, dance, theater, film, visual arts, literature, media – you name it. We give artists stages, screens, galleries, spaces, training and the connections needed to share their work.

Stanford Arts Institute helps audiences discover Stanford University’s cultural organizations, events and artists. We work in partnership with Stanford’s wealth of artists and arts groups, big and small, just starting out and established, of every discipline and in every academic department.
