Bringing the best international music, contemporary dance, and jazz from around the world to stages across the city is what Global Arts Live does—and has been doing for almost 30 years. Global Arts Live fills a void in Boston by putting a spotlight on international artists who share their unique artistic vision. A trusted curator, Global Arts Live has made live, international music and dance a vital part of Boston’s cultural scene by featuring more than 800 artists from 70+ countries in over 1,500 performances attended by more than 1 million people. To be as inclusive as possible, foster experimentation, and support a diverse community of artists, Global Arts Live is not bound by walls. Instead, we bring outstanding artists to the most appropriate settingfrom intimate 200-seat clubs to 2,500-seat theaters and everything in between. Each year, we present over 60 concerts in more than 15 different venues across the city. Global Arts Live is a nonprofit organization with a mission—to put the spotlight on artistic excellence from all corners of the globe...transcending borders, cultivating community, and enriching lives.
