Mirroring Writers Theatre's mission, the Education Department reflects our commitment to the written word and the cultivation of young artists.
WT Education programs are aimed at exploring text, nurturing the creativity of young people and instilling appreciation of the arts for future generations. Through comprehensive programming in schools, on-site and through community-based initiatives, WT Education’s curriculum is designed to emphasize collaboration, cultivate self-expression, encourage imaginative inquiry and promote civic responsibility and social justice.
From this mission, WT Education programs fall under four pillars: Onsite Creative Learning, Residency Programs, Touring Outreach and Student Matinees. Each of these pillars reflect the distinct objectives of the department across multi-faceted programming. In conjunction with these pillars, WT Education also oversees professional Internships and Audience Engagement efforts.
"I continue to advocate for Writers Theatre's programs because of its positive impact to the children I work with and know that each time they come to Peirce only the best results are evident."
