Our Location

MICE is making a new home at Boston University thanks to our partnership with Boston University's Art Galleries and School of Visual Arts Visual Narrative MFA program.

We acknowledge that the territory on which Boston University stands is that of The Wampanoag and The Massachusett People.


Our annual festival would not be possible without the support of these amazing organizations. If you'd like to be a part of this growing arts community, reach out to our Sponsorship Team at for more information.
