Since 1963, Festival of the Arts (FOTA) has enhanced the life of the mind with a spirit of artistic inquiry. We promote artistic expression at The University of Chicago by bringing together the diversity of campus, artists and audiences, through on-campus events that advocate arts creation and appreciation. Feel free to peruse the site to meet our FOTA Board, get to know our FOTA Fellows and learn about upcoming events!
FOTA is excited to kick off the 2020 - 2021 academic year at The University of Chicago. Autumn quarter will begin with recruitment for FOTA Board and FOTA Fellowship. Events for Winter and Spring quarters are to be determined. Click below for details!
