Community Connections aligns the theater with Boston-area non-profit organizations for the purpose of providing underserved families and individuals with access to high-quality arts experiences. Community Connections organizations work with the A.R.T. to develop a custom-built arts partnership that pairs subsidized tickets to A.R.T. with an array of enrichment programming – ranging from private artist talks to creative workshops.
Community Connections registration for the 2014-15 season is now open! We seek partner organizations with 501(c)3 non-profit status whose constituents frequently meet with social, economic, cultural or geographic obstacles to arts participation. Please apply below, and we will investigate whether Community Connections is a good fit!
For more information, please contact Brendan Shea via e-mail or at 617.496.2000 x 8834.

The A.R.T. works with non-profit partners around the city to enliven and creatively engage with our public spaces through site-specific audio plays written by local teenagers.
