Your contribution makes a difference!
During the Summer months, The Arts Partnership provides the community with fun, outdoor events such as Boogie on Main Street, Rib Off, and Riverside Wine Festival, and also The Downtown Winter Blues Festival in February. But did you know that by attending these events, you are directly helping to impact thousands of students and teachers in our area? Our Arts in Education program helps local youth and their educators to attend creative learning/teaching seminars and workshops at no cost. Here, participants can expand their horizons in an “out-of-the-box” environment that allows for further growth and experience.
Your contribution also allows our School Day Performances to be possible in the lives of our youth! Every year, The Arts Partnership provides students from area schools with the opportunity to experience live, theatrical performances, during their school day, along side their friends and peers. While entertainment costs are high, some families do not have the ability to experience live, family-friendly events. Our School Day Performances allow ALL students to be able to see a show in a fun, high energy environment that is beneficial on many levels:
250 Student Participants
200 Adult Instructors/Volunteers
2,050 Attended Performances
School Day Performances
6,000 Students attended performances
Dramatic Connections Program
1,130 Elementary Students attended
Professional Development for Teachers
105 Education Professionals/Pre-Service Educators
800 Students–> In-class Sessions/Lucy Bagby Assembly
The 2012 line-up, as well as a printable registration form, can be seen on our School Day Performances page!
