At the Community Engagement Office, we build community through innovative, socially engaging art and design programs.
Our partnerships and initiatives create avenues for you to extend your talent and expertise beyond the walls of our school. We work hard to develop opportunities for our students, faculty, and staff—as well as the greater Cambridge community—to participate in events ranging from artist lectures and film series to hands-on workshops.
Art & Social Justice Film Series
Open to the Lesley community and the general public, this series promotes dialogue around critical social issues that impact us all—whether we’re artists, designers, viewers, participants, or passersby.
Explore different topics in art and design, make new connections, or refine skills. Attend one of our community workshops hosted in partnership with the Cambridge Art Association, Maud Morgan Arts Center, and other local organizations.
Through our PARTICIPATE initiative, we develop participatory public art projects with community organizations and neighboring schools. Each project is designed to strengthen student learning in response to community needs.
