Purdue Convocations aims to connect area youth to the performing arts by offering a wide array of programming appropriate for a variety of learner needs. Our Youth Programming for the 2016-17 season features in-school residencies about Abraham Lincoln and a Native American flute and hoop dancer as well as premiere touring artists on the cutting edge of science and music, amazing puppeteers, and a delightful musical cat. Our family matinees include hands-on pre-show activities everyone in the family will enjoy. Bring the youth in your life to any of our live performances and experience the enrichment that only comes through the participation in the performing arts.
Purdue Convocations strives to create immersive experiences in the performing arts that catalyze the curriculum for both Purdue and Ivy Tech students. Students have the opportunity to dive deeper into each performance with pre- and post-show discussions and artist residencies. Artist residencies in the 16-17 season include performers from touring Broadway productions, robots with Artificial Intelligence, and classical musicians.
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.
