Access for All Initiative

 

Access for All

Thanks to generous donors and support from Baltimore City Public Schools and the Baltimore Office of Promotions and The Arts, Young Audiences artists and programs are available to high-need Baltimore City Public Schools at up to 80% off of the cost (a $400 assembly could cost you only $80!) through the Access for All Initiative. This opportunity helps principals with limited resources provide hands-on learning in the arts that supplements and enriches the curriculum.

Research shows that access to high-quality arts experiences can positively impact student engagement, attendance, behavior, academic performance, and school culture. Whether it’s an educational arts performance or an in-depth artist-in-residence program, Young Audiences programs:

  • Reach students of every age and grade level, giving them the chance to learn about new art forms and cultures.
  • Provide an opportunity for students to think critically, solve problems, and express themselves—essential ingredients to student engagement.
  • Have the power to improve your students’ self-confidence, self-identity, conflict resolution skills, collaboration, and social tolerance.

Schools can choose from:

  • 60 different assemblies/performances
  • 40 different artist-in-residence programs
  • 20 different individual workshops
  • Professional development workshops for educators
