Bates Arts Collaborative

Artists, musicians, dancers, writers, faculty, staff, and students coming together to share, collaborate and connect. Our purpose is to elevate the arts on campus and in our community, to advocate the importance of experiencing and bringing the arts into our daily lives, and to celebrate the artistic achievements of our students, faculty and local community.


The Bates Arts Collaborative is dedicated to infusing the arts and creative process into a broad range of our liberal arts education. We support art makers, scholars, coordinate collaborative work in the arts, advocate for the arts in college planning, and give the arts a voice in the leadership of the college. We envision the college with a flourishing creative environment that reaches multiple constituencies within and beyond our campus.
