Act One’s Rural Field Trip Program
Many rural schools cannot travel great distances to see high-quality, live performances in our metro cities. Act One believes that rural students deserve wonderful arts experiences, too! Act One’s mission is to provide access to the arts to all of Arizona’s students, so this year we created…the Act One Rural Field Trip Program!
We started in the hometown of our Field Trip Manager, Susan Collins. Kingman is in the northwest corner of Arizona, just south of the Grand Canyon and Lake Mead. Act One is working with local sponsors and arts and cultural partners to bring quality arts education experiences directly to Kingman students. We will provide shows for students in Kingman schools and a workshop experience for high school students presented by professional artists.
Are you interested in having Act One bring performances to your rural community? Let’s talk! Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
Here’s what you need:
- Your location is more than 75 miles from venues in Phoenix or Tucson
- A venue where a production can take place (auditorium, gymnasium, or multi-purpose room),
- a list of 2-5 local businesses or foundations that would accept a proposal for sponsorship.
- An idea of the type of art or cultural experience you would like to have presented
