Silk Road Project Moves Headquarters to North Allston

Apr 13, 2010

The Silk Road Project will move its headquarters to North Allston this summer, strengthening a partnership between Harvard University and the world-renowned organization that promotes innovation and learning through the arts.

Harvard President Drew Faust and Yo-Yo Ma ’76, the project’s founder and artistic director, announced on April 13, 2010 that the relocation of the Silk Road Project from Rhode Island to Harvard-owned property at 175 North Harvard St. in Allston this July will enable new artistic and cultural opportunities at the University and in surrounding communities.

The Silk Road Project is a nonprofit artistic, cultural, and educational organization with a vision of connecting the world’s neighborhoods by bringing together artists and audiences. The announcement marked the second time Harvard has welcomed a major not-for-profit organization to Allston in as many months.

The new Project headquarters’ location — in space shared with the Harvard Allston Education Portal — provides opportunities for further cultural collaborations that will benefit the Harvard community and its neighbors.

The Silk Road Ensemble with Yo-Yo Ma will give annual public performances at Harvard, and Silk Road Ensemble musicians and artists will be available to take part in classroom work on campus, through performance, discussion, and collaborative projects.
