Community Connections

826 Boston Playwriting Workshop Performance

Through Community Connections, A.R.T. partners with Boston-area non-profit organizations, bringing high-quality arts experiences to underserved families and individuals. Community Connections organizations work with A.R.T. to develop a custom-built arts partnership  pairing subsidized tickets to A.R.T. performances with an array of enrichment programming – ranging from private artist talks to creative workshops.

Community Connections registration for the 2015/16 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.

Neighborhood Podcast Play Series

An ongoing Community Connections activity is our popular Neighborhood Podcast Play series. 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. Download the plays from our website and explore our local parks and neighborhoods with a fresh perspective.
