TheatreWorks receives $20,000 grant

TheatreWorks Silicon Valley recently received a $20,000 grant from the California Arts Council as part of its Arts Education Exposure program.

The program supports attendance at what the council describes as high-quality performances and exhibits for students with limited access to such experiences.

Priority is given to events that offer deep cultural resonance with the student communities served, complemented by pre- and post-attendance activities such as artist talkbacks, teaching artist workshops and facility tours.

TheatreWorks plans to use the grant money to expand its professional “Oskar” tour, which offers in-school performances at underrepresented elementary schools (K-5), along with complementary arts education. The tour presents TheatreWorks’ award-winning plays about a young boy named Oskar who explores topics such as bullying, stress and diversity.
