Through our website, newsletter, and alumni quarterly, The Sachs Program highlights events, performances, exhibitions, and other forms of public engagement on and off campus. Most of what we list is neither produced nor directly supported by The Sachs Program. Our intent is to point you to the great things happening at Penn and driven by Penn faculty, staff, students, and alumni. Penn is a destination for the arts. Happenings are what we think you should be experiencing now.
