Providing Access to the Arts for All
Act One’s programs provide arts experiences to those who otherwise wouldn’t be able to access the arts through field trips for students from Title 1 schools and the Act One Culture Pass.
“Act One occupies a unique space at the intersection of arts and education by providing access to the arts for Title 1 kids who could not otherwise attend these programs … The bottom line for me is it’s all about equity. I and my children were fortunate to be able to experience the arts as part of our educational development. I want all children to have the same opportunities.”
Field Trips for Students from Title 1 Schools
Act One annually provides field trips to the arts in Metro Phoenix and Tucson for students from Title 1 schools. In 2018-19, Act One has capacity to bring more than 46,000 students and chaperones on field trips to the theater, music performances and museums. Act One purchases the tickets, pays for the buses and provides classroom materials to help teachers prepare students for their field trips. Schools are responsible for just $1 per participant.Learn More
