Emerson students’ talent and creativity were on full display this past weekend during the three-day EmBrace Our HeArts Festival.

The School of the Arts Dean’s Fellows for Racial Equity and Leadership Development created the arts festival to celebrate diverse voices at Emerson. The festival showcased work across the Visual and Media Arts, Performing Arts, and Writing, Literature & Publishing departments. 

The first evening of the festival featured films created by students of color.

On Saturday, the Into the Spotlight variety show provided an opportunity for students to take the stage of the Cutler Majestic Theatre.

The final evening of the festival featured a book sale and open mic in partnership with Beacon Hill Books & Cafe. The open mic featured stories, poems, and more by students of color. A “book truck” provided a selection of books by authors of color for sale.
