Making connections and finding opportunities in the arts and entertainment industry can be quite a challenge. 

Need some help?  Or can you help your fellow BC alums?

The Boston College Arts Council and the BC Alumni Association have put together an opportunity to make it happen.  Actors ... meet the producers.  Artists ... meet the gallery owners. Writers ... meet the filmmakers.  And more!  The possibilities for collaboration are endless.  And the BC arts community is growing.  Join us!
