The Graduate Arts Forum program encourages artistic collaboration and intellectual discussions among MIT graduate students from different departments. The program organizes a series of three forums each term that promote and engage students interested in the arts at MIT through presentations, discussions and social gatherings at arts venues.
- Presentations by MIT Graduate students, moderated by an MIT faculty member or professional in a related field.
- Lectures by professional artists.
- Themed gatherings designed to support the discussion of arts related ideas and topics.
All MIT community members welcome.

May 3rd: Timothy Cooke presents and moderates: Designer as Researcher: what role can aesthetic investigation play in technical innovation?
If we accept there’s a “designerly way of knowing” separate, and inherently different from scientific or scholarly knowledge, as claimed by proponents of design research, what happens when designers engage in a practice grounded in scientific study? A diverse panel, comprised of various stakeholders in the field, will interrogate this question in an effort to probe the murky language of research that has come to saturate the world of design.
