NYU Shanghai Student Government is excited to debut the University's first-ever Festival of the Arts this Friday, March 6 to Sunday, March 8 in the Pudong Campus Academic Building.

Open to all NYU Shanghai students, faculty, and staff, the Festival of the Arts brings together all forms of artistic expression and is the perfect opportunity for attendees to get their creative juices flowing. Featuring a jam-packed schedule of events spanning singing, dancing, theater, and the visual arts, the three-day festival includes both masterclasses (available by sign-up only) and talks by local artists and creatives.

Starting with a three-hour open studio on March 6, the festival will continue the following day with photography and graffiti walks, discussions with artists and professors, and masterclasses teaching stage combat, stepping, and singing.

The final day of the festival will close with an exclusive Gallery opening showcasing the works of NYU Shanghai students, followed by Jazz Night in the 15th Floor Colloquium Room with versatile jazz-soul performer Anne Evenou.
