Education Programs

As a leader in the Eugene arts and culture community, the Hult Center provides students with access to the arts through free student matinees, workshops, masterclasses, Q&As, and more!

STUDENT MATINEES

Each season, the Hult Center programs free student matinees for students of all grades. In addition to seeing a show, students often have the chance to attend a post-show talk back or Q&A session with the artists.  These post-show opportunities, along with study guides, allow the students to gain a holistic understanding of the performance and how it integrates into their studies and life.

In our 2023-2024 Student Matinee season we welcomed 1,800 students into our halls for two programs, Into the Canyon: Between River and Rim with Pete McBride and Kevin Fedarko and Las Cafeteras: Viva La Musica! Viva La Cultura!

Registration forms for our 2024-2025 season will open on August 30th. 

If you are an Educator or Administrator, we invite you to our Educator Open House on Thursday, August 29th 4-6pm at the Hult Center, where we will preview the upcoming season of student matinees and share more about our education offerings.

Internship Program

The Hult Center for the Performing Arts offers hands-on experience in various fields related to arts administration and event management through our paid internship program. 

Applications for Fall internships will open on August 26th, 2024! 

Internship Requirements:

Internships at the center are designed to offer experiential learning to those considering careers within arts management. Although internship opportunities are not provided year-round by all Hult Center departments, there is typically an internship opening in one or more departments throughout the year.

Part-time internships (5-10 hours per week) require a minimum commitment of ten weeks by intern candidates. Pending the needs of individual departments, flexibility in daily or weekly work scheduling may be required and some work in the evenings and weekends may be necessary. 

Internships opportunities include rotation of experience in Education & Community Engagement, Marketing, and Arts Administration.   

You can still visit our Program Summary Page for information on specific internships, as well as contact information.

 


 

WORKSHOPS

Each season through our Hult Presents program, the Hult Center works with professional artists to provide workshops for community members of all ages. Workshops are usually free, or a minimal registration fee, and allow students to work directly with professional artists, exploring their craft in an interactive way.

This season, we collaborated with Broadway shows like Les Misérables and Mean Girls, and with artists from our Discovery Series, Pamyua and Las Cafeteras to host several free workshops. For these workshops, we partnered with Pegasus Playhouse, Ophelia’s Place, the Many Nations Longhouse, and the Eugene Public Library.

Be sure to visit this page to learn about future scheduled workshops or sign up to receive our quarterly newsletter showcasing all upcoming opportunities.
