E3 - Engage. Experience. Explore

E3: Engage. Experience. Explore. provides participants with the opportunity to engage, experience, and explore the arts through exposure to high quality performance groups. E3 seeks to inspire future artists, introduce participants to innovative approaches to art, and encourage self-expression.

Whether you are a teacher looking to expand your students’ classroom experiences in ways that support your Common Core goals, or a parent seeking new ways to engage your children in the arts, there are many opportunities to discover, enrich, and expand your love of the arts at Bethel Woods!

In 2018, we expect to present three residencies for this program—elementary, middle, and high school—to reach K-12 annually. This spring we are looking to reach our high school audience, and anticipate implementing programming for our elementary and middle school audiences this fall

Wondering if E3 is right for you?

  • Are you a school hoping to welcome performers into your auditorium and classrooms?
  • Are you a school wanting to bring children to Bethel Woods for a performance?
  • Are you a member of the community interested in attending our family show in the Event Gallery at The Museum at Bethel Woods?
    • If yes, reserve your tickets to be a part of our community performance in the Event Gallery at Bethel Woods.

PLEASE NOTE: For in-school performances/workshops and out-of-school day performances at Bethel Woods, there is an application that the school or organization needs to complete. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis. Typically up to two schools are chosen for the in-school opportunity, we suggest applying as soon as possible.
