School & Community Outreach
Artivate supports local and touring artists to serve at community-based organizations. Our mission is to bring experiences in the arts to children and local communities in the hopes of enriching lives. The venues at which we have served include public libraries, schools, botanical gardens, museums, and prestigious theaters, such as Wolf Trap and the Kennedy Center.
We work with schools and other community organizations to design and plan programs. Our diverse artist roster offers many kinds of performances and cultural experiences, having the ability to serve a wide range of audiences. Many artists provide the option of doing workshops or residencies; small groups of students participate in sequential workshops with the artist to extend learning and enhance core curriculum concepts. A residency is a professional performance followed by a series of workshops that usually includes a culminating performance with the participating students.
Through interactive performances, our artists at Artivate inspire audiences to see the world through the lens of different cultures. Our programs provide entertaining and educational qualities, which help audience members develop a greater awareness of self-expression and understanding of others.
Our artists also offer professional development workshops. Contact us to discuss bringing one of our experienced teaching artists in to your school or business to lead one.
