The John B. Hurford '60 Center for the Arts and Humanities at Haverford College hosts a variety of seminars, symposia, working groups, arts and performance residences, and exhibitions to cultivate interdisciplinary conversation among the college’s faculty, students, staff, and the wider public. The Hurford Center hosts artist residencies designed and implemented by faculty in conjunction with their curricula and scholarly work, and it produces social change arts projects through its Philadelphia Area Creative Collaboratives program. In 2019, the Hurford Center received a Project grant to host a residency with Berlin-based artist collective Slavs and Tatars as they develop The Contest of the Fruits, a multi-disciplinary project that explores physical and cultural borders, heritage, and identity.
