Education and Community Engagement

About Us

The Hult Center for the Performing Arts’ Education and Community Engagement program is committed to removing barriers and increasing community access to a diverse selection of world-class presentations, performances and education experiences. Our initiatives strive to ignite a greater appreciation for art, culture and creativity within our community and beyond. The Hult Center believes that it is a right, not a privilege, that every community member has the opportunity to experience art and to develop their own creative capital regardless of skill level and/or socioeconomic status. Our programs are intended to enrich, inspire and engage, and highlight the tremendous impact the arts have on our daily lives.
