ArtsEmerson Leadership Photo“For the past decade, we’ve circled the globe to bring you works that challenge, dazzle, and provoke. On stage and on screen, in our downtown venues and in neighborhoods all over Greater Boston, our goal has been to inspire connection across our differences and discover all we have in common. We hope you will help us spread the word about what it feels like, and what it means, to be a part of the ArtsEmerson community.”
