CONNECT WITH TEXAS PERFORMING ARTS
The arts enrich lives. As part of The University of Texas at Austin College of Fine Arts, Texas Performing Arts has the unique ability to share new, interesting and important artistic work with the UT and Austin community. Part of our mission is to encourage arts education and appreciation for all ages, cultures and backgrounds.
CAMPUS & COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT EVENTS
Our engagement programs connect UT faculty, students, touring artists and the greater Central Texas community through a number of collaborations to contextualize the performing arts experience. Events include artist-directed symposia, workshops, post-performance talkbacks, lectures, brown bag lunches, youth performances, and other events to offer insight on many different levels into skill, technique, and the creative process.
EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS (Grades 7-12)
Each year we offer free daytime performances for students in grades 7-12 with corresponding educational resources including study guides, worksheets, self-guided digital presentations, and in-school presentations. We also offer complimentary tickets to season performances that allow teachers to bring small groups of students to enjoy the arts as part of our Students Experiencing Art with Their Teachers Program (S.E.A.T.), as well as behind-the-scenes career tours.
The ArtesAméricas* program brings exceptional Latin American and US Latino artists to Texas Performing Arts for exciting performances as well as collaborations with University students, faculty and Austin audiences.
