21/22 Virtual Education Series

Brought to you by TD Bank Group

With all field trips suspended for 2021 due to COVID-19, and in response to educators’ urgent need for curriculum-related digital performing arts content, BPAC is pivoting our live education and outreach program into a virtual performing arts education series. The goal of our Virtual Education Series is to digitally engage students in meaningful arts education learning, and to maintain BPAC’s connection with students and educators as a resource for industry expertise, arts career mentorship, and unique and inspiring performing arts experiences.

Our performing arts educational sessions are livestreamed from BPAC and can be digitally delivered directly into classrooms across the region. Our 2021 Virtual Education Series features extraordinary performances in music or theatre, as well as speaking engagements by industry professionals working in all aspects of the performing arts. These performances and speaking engagements can be followed up with a second livestream session where a curriculum-related virtual workshop and Q&A is delivered to the students.

Each Session is approximately 50-60 minutes in length, including Q&A period with the students.

Community Workshops

Burlington has a substantial pool of artistic talent in the community, and The Burlington Performing Arts Centre plays a pivotal role in impacting the artistic growth and development of our local artistic community. As part of our mission to nurture and support local artists we have launched a Public Education & Outreach Series which provides access and opportunities for local artists, arts organizations and audience members.

At BPAC we aim to develop comprehensive, impactful and accessible learning experiences for all ages, and we are committed to fostering artistic appreciation, development and participation through our Public Education & Outreach Series. These initiatives are aimed at developing artistic practice for local artists and providing enhanced arts experiences for our audiences.

By offering enhanced artistic learning opportunities for our community, performing arts disciplines will become more accessible and audience members can maximize their enjoyment of our performances. Public educational opportunities include post-performance talk backs, pre-performance lectures, master classes and workshops.

Golden Ticket Program

BPAC's Golden Ticket

BPAC’s Golden Ticket Program distributes FREE theatre tickets to students and families who would otherwise not be able to access the performing arts.

At The Burlington Performing Arts Centre we believe that every child deserves access to meaningful cultural and artistic experiences. We believe that creativity, and the capacity for creative expression, is essential to the lives of young people. The arts open new doors and teaches children skills that will benefit them for the rest of their lives. The arts are what make us human, and what connect us to the world, to each other.
