Off The Stage And Into Your Home
Inspired Connections | Intimate Access | Distinctive Experiences
We all know this year has been an adventure and, while it seems we’ve been quiet, we’ve been reimagining ways to bring truly meaningful connections off the stage and into your homes. We’re pleased to announce the first chapter of our virtual fall season featuring intimate access to artists who awaken curiosity and illuminate new understanding, with opportunities you won’t find anywhere else.
Our signature artist outreach programs, which bring the joy of the arts to our communities, have been reimagined with expanded access for all. We want to make it easier than ever to join us and try something new. Expect personal connections to our artists through workshops, conversations and performances that will leave you inspired, connected and renewed.
We invite you to grab a comfortable seat, relax and spend some time reconnecting with us. This is just the beginning - we'll be announcing new performances and workshop opportunities in the coming weeks. Whether we're online or in person, you can always Expect Wow from us!
How does it work?
Buy your virtual ticket with our pay as you can prices. Gather with your family and watch together. No need for multiple tickets! You'll receive an email 24 hours before the event with a link and information about how to join the stream. One link per ticket. You can watch on any internet-connected device on your favorite internet browser. We recommend a large screen and good speakers for performances but workshops and other outreach programs might be better experienced on a computer.
Prices - Pay-As-You-Can
In 2020, we all - everyone of us - need the arts in our lives more than ever and we know this year has new hurdles. We want everyone to be able to experience our season with us so we are introducing Pay-As-You-Can ticketing. This allows you to pick the price that makes the most sense for you to participate, as low as $0. The recommended ticket price for streamed events is $20. We recognize that may not work for everyone right now and, thanks to the generous support of our sponsors, donors and campuses, we are able to make these performances accessible to anyone experiencing financial difficulty. We also recognize that there is a cost to present these performances and that artists need to earn a living. If you can support us, please do. CSB/SJU Students recommended price is $0 for 2020.
Intimate Access to Artists
Throughout the coming year, there will be opportunities for you to participate in artist workshops. You'll be able to take a writing workshop, experience a Creole cooking demo, maybe even take a virtual dance class! These experiences can expand skills you already have, introduce you to something new or just reconnect you to art that you've loved and have missed. Most workshops will be hosted through Zoom and would be best experienced through a computer so you can easily access the Zoom meeting or, if you have a smart TV that you're comfortable navigating, you can log into Zoom with your smartphone and cast to the TV.
Visual Arts Series
Our art galleries are gifts to our communities with free access for everyone to streamed conversations and workshops. The series features celebration of artistic expression in a variety of mediums with thought provoking subject matter. This season, you can join our Arts Talks via streamed events!
