ENGAGE

ENAGE WITH PHILADELPHIA PUBLIC SCHOOL STUDENTS

Ensure that 4,000 students per year are able to participate in fully subsidized Wilmagination residencies.

Wilmagination ignites student learning through the immediacy of living, adventurous theater.  Wilmagination residencies bring professional artists and the performing arts into public school classrooms, introducing resources and materials from outside the core curriculum to continue developing interdisciplinary literacy skills.  By treating the Wilma’s educational programming as a complement to its mainstage productions, Wilmagination’s model for arts education utilizes the same collaborative, ensemble-based creative process with students that grounds the Wilma's artistic vision.  In so doing, these residencies integrate our mainstage work into a rigorous classroom curriculum, while helping educators bridge gaps in their own resources as they work to develop 21st Century Learning Skills.
