Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update

Due to restrictions surrounding the Coronavirus (COVID-19), many Act One Field Trips have been cancelled for the 2019-20 school year. Culture Passes are being paused beginning March 16 and will resume when libraries and arts partners return to normal operations. Arts are an essential part of healthy communities, and we encourage you to like us on Facebook and Instragram for artful at-home options.

Field Trips for Title 1 Schools

We believe that every child should have educational opportunities that include professional arts experiences. By providing field trips for students from Title 1 schools, Act One opens a world for students from low-income families. We’ve currently booked more than 50,000 students and chaperones on arts field trips for the 2019-20 school year.

Quotation Mark

“That child [on an Act One field trip] sitting in the audience, experiencing something for the first time. Imagine what’s happening. They see a color, they see a movement, they hear a note. They hear a story that is new to them. That opens them up. That pushes at their imagination. That flexes that muscle of openness. It’s a muscle that they can nurture their whole lives.”

— Dr. Steven Tepper, Dean, Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts, ASU
