Education and Outreach
Providing interaction between students, the community, and artists both in and beyond the theatre is an important part of our mission.
While our standard Youth Series school matinees will not be returning for the Spring of 2022, we do hope you will join us for one of our public family performances. They include something the entire family will enjoy, from a new spin on an old classic to a golden ticket with a sprinkling of hope. Bring the youth in your life to any of our live performances and experience the enrichment that only comes through participation in the performing arts.
Purdue Convocations strives to create immersive performing-arts experiences that catalyze the curriculum for students at both Purdue University and Ivy Tech Community College of Indiana. Pre-show discussions, as well as artist residencies, give students of all pursuits, backgrounds, and ages an opportunity to dive deeper into each performance. Artist residencies in the 2021-22 Season include classical musicians, a modern music collective, and a movement based group described as architecture in motion. Convocations continues to advance collaborations with other campus units like the Office of Student Success and the Department of English to further integrate the performing arts into the core student experience.
Purdue Convocations aims to energize the community through powerful interactions and learning encounters with the artists who join us each season. Community members can become “instant experts” and dig deeper into each show at pre- and post-show discussions. These events are free to all ticket holders.
