Act II at A.R.T.

Be more than a spectator.

Anna Deavere Smith

A.R.T.’s Act II initiative is an experiment in disrupting the role of spectator as passive observer. Act II events invite audience members to pursue deeper engagement with productions and highlight the variety of ways that A.R.T. community members continue to create impact in the Boston area and the world. Past events have included speaker series, gallery visits, film screenings, podcasts, and moderated conversations with scholars, medical professionals, families, activists, artists, educators, and more.
