Education & Outreach
At Bethel Woods, we seek to inspire, educate, and empower individuals through the arts and humanities. We believe that arts are critical to the strength of a community, and our programs are designed to give audiences of all ages and backgrounds opportunities to explore history and the arts. In all of our programming, our goal is to help build creative capital by inspiring individuals to contribute positively to the world around them. Whether connecting with a speaker or screening an art house film, attending a cultural performance or standing in the spotlight, touring the museum with a school group or visiting with your family, there are programs for everyone at Bethel Woods.
Funding for education, outreach and museum programming for individuals and families is provided by generous individuals, foundations and agencies including: Montreign Resort Casino, American Gift Fund, John N. Blackman Sr. Foundation, Annelise Gerry and Family, Robyn Gerry, IBM, Joan Kaplan, the Monticello Motor Club, the Museum Association of New York, the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature, the Rhulen Loughlin Family -- in memory of Trevor John Loughlin, and James and Kelly Schmitt. Transportation and tuition assistance made possible in part by First Niagara Foundation, Dan and Joan Silna, and the Williams Endowed Education Fund at Bethel Woods Center for the Arts.
Support for Flicks and WoodsTalk: Live! is provided by the S.L. Gimbel Foundation Advised Fund at The Community Foundation.
