Highlights from Past Events

Images of Advent

Jaclyn Thesis

Images of Advent

This project provides a powerful entry point into prayer. This collection of 26 images and reflections is the work of 30 community members of The Paulist Center, a Catholic community in downtown Boston. Contributors prepared their pieces through prayer with daily Scripture in the spirit of Advent: waiting, expecting, longing, and hoping. The exhibit was shared via social media as an intentional practice.

Week of Dance

During the first week of December the Arts Council and the Robsham Theater Arts Center premiered a brand new event, the Week of Dance! This week-long celebration was created to showcase the spectacular dancing talent Boston College has to offer.  With a movie night, photo exhibition, and dance workshops run by student groups, this event encouraged everyone to step outside of their comfort zone and dance.  The week culminated with two nights of a showcase featuring some of the best student-run dance groups at BC.
