The Crossroads Project

Tsai Performance Center
685 Commonwealth Avenue

Exploring nature, humanity and the paths that lie before us through art and science


The mandate for great and difficult achievement is manifest in the message coming from the science of sustainability and climate change. Yet information alone will not take us where we need to go; science needs the arts to compel a response. It is the synergy of these two great human enterprises that creates both intellectual and emotional clarity. Crossroads takes an audience from intellectual understanding, to visceral experience, to personal resolve.
