People lean forward. They are gripped and moved, full of energy and ready to plunge. A good talk can carry a charge like live music, and curious audiences come to our colleges and museums to share passion and possibility.
- Global journalists, artists, scientists and activists share knowledge and experience at Williams College, MCLA and Bennington College — from fiction writer Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie to journalist Cokie Roberts and environmentalist Bill McKibben. Talks are open to all — and free.
- Curators, contemporary artists from Titus Kaphar to Nick Cave, musicians, dancers and poets speak at the Clark Art Institute, Mass MoCA and WCMA about art at our museums.
- Directors and actors speak and perform all summer at Williamstown Theatre Festival and through the year at our colleges and museums, exploring new work.
Operated by Follett, the college bookstore offers new fiction and nonfiction, readings and book signings, gifts and textbooks and a cafe run by Tunnel City Coffee.
Founded in 1793, Williams College is the second oldest institution of higher learning in Massachusetts and is consistently ranked among the top liberal arts colleges in the country.
MCLA promotes learning and teaching, innovative scholarship, intellectual creativity, public service, applied knowledge and active and responsible citizenship.
