No where else in the world can you find the range of disciplines in one school. Over the last 50 years as we forged new programs, built our home in New York and expanded to our global academic centers, institutes emerged. Each are built with shared values, common goals, and a priority for putting students first. The result – a place where artists and scholars create the future.
Visiting students and non-majors are invited to take classes during January Term, Spring at Tisch, and Summer. Earn credits towards your major or minor, build your résumé with an internship, or take classes to change careers. Come be inspired by New York City and our international sites.
The Office of Special Programs at Tisch School of the Arts provides access to the arts. Whether you’re an NYU or visiting college student, high school student or working professional, we provide you with the introductory exposure to the performing or cinematic arts and the advanced-level training to grow your craft.

Interference Archive is a volunteer-run activist archive in Brooklyn; since 2011, they have been collecting the cultural production of social movements—print ephemera, film, literature, and more— made available in an open stacks collection completely open to the public four days a week. This open stacks policy and volunteer-run structure offers a welcome alternative to the power structures scholars tend to speak of in theorizing The Archive.
Interference Archive’s collection is activated through regular exhibitions and programming, as a way to engage with and learn from the rich history of social movement organizing. In January -- April 2018, Interference Archive is pleased to partner with the Seattle-based collaborative If You Don’t They Will to host their installation of no. NOT EVER., a multi-media, interdisciplinary, immersive installation that provides an anti-racist, anti-fascist framework for understanding the rise of white nationalism in the current moment. This video-based “living archive” depicts a wide-range of rural and suburban organizing strategies from the 1980’s and 1990’s that say “no. NOT EVER.” to white nationalism in the Pacific Northwest.
This illustrated lecture—led by Interference Archive organizer Jen Hoyer alongside Molly Mac from If You Don’t They Will —will trace the history and current work of Interference Archive, sparking discussions about the nature of archives and collection management, and will focus on the role of video in the no. NOT EVER. exhibition.
Free and open to the public.
