Community Engagement Programs
Our Community Engagement programs strive to enhance relationships with community organizations and individuals throughout the greater Eugene area. Through a variety of enrichment programs and community partnerships, we seek to bring the performing arts to a diverse population within our extended community.
Hult Center Community Resource Group
The Hult Center for the Performing Arts Community Resource Group creates and holds space for historically marginalized and/or underrepresented communities to gather and converse; empowering individuals to participate, share knowledge and support the art they want to experience; thereby making the Hult Center and the programs safe and accessible for all.
This is a new initiative, and we are thrilled to build this program, implement changes and grow with this group. Applications are currently closed. If you are interested in being notified when applications open up, please email our Education and Community Engagement team at HultEducation@eugene-or.gov. Thank you!
Hult Center Community Tickets Program
Hult Center for the Performing Arts distributes free or subsidized tickets to community organizations serving populations lacking adequate access to the performing arts. Program participants include nonprofit organizations focusing on youth development, social services, persons with disabilities, individuals with fixed incomes, or other groups that, for a variety of reasons, do not have regular opportunities to experience high quality performing arts.
An organization must submit an application to become an official partner in the Community Tickets program. Organizations accepted into the program will receive regular communications about performances available for Community Tickets.
Disclaimer: The Hult Center for the Performing Arts works with several different organizations throughout Lane County and beyond, and believes it is vital to make the arts accessible for all. The Center has a limited number of tickets to distribute to the Community Tickets program. If organizations cannot use some or all of their tickets for their selected performance, they must let the Education and Community Engagement Team know 48 hours in advance. This allows us to redistribute to other partners in the Community Tickets Program.
If participants do not show up to their selected performance, and the organization has not let the Hult Center know ahead of time, for more than 3 performances, their organization may be suspended from the Community Tickets Program.
Community Partner Highlight
The Hult Center works with local organizations to create enriching opportunities in our communities. Our Community Partners have helped us to offer everything from book clubs to writing workshops to screen-printing tutorials. If you are interested in collaborating on a community program, please reach out to HultEducation@eugene-or.gov.
Last fall, the Hult Center through our Hult Presents program collaborated with Threadbare and the Eugene Public Library to host a Teen Poster Competition. The winning design was used for the production of Manual Cinema’s Frankenstein and Threadbare printed a small batch of posters. Our winning designer got a hands-on lesson from Threadbare screen printers and two free tickets to attend the production of Frankenstein.
