CVPA Community Engagement
Welcome to CVPA’s Community Engagement website. Here you will find community programs for children and young adults and those who are young at heart. This site also includes information about our College’s many community-based events and exhibits, including Greensboro Project Space, Dancers Connect, Summer Music Camp, North Carolina Theatre for Young People, and more. Our community arts lessons and classes can be found under “educational programs” while our exhibits and festivals are located under “activities.” All told, CVPA has over 30 community engagement programs and opportunities in art, dance, music, and theatre!
Community educational programs and activities are a way that CVPA and community partners collectively build ongoing, permanent relationships for social benefits and outcomes (see “partners”). All of these educational programs and activities are teaching CVPA students how to become community-based artists during their time in Greensboro and equipping them with skills for a career in the arts. CVPA’s Community Engagement, under the direction of Caitlyn Schrader, is a resource to support faculty and community engaged programs. I hope that these programs and the press about them (see “news”) will spark your interest and creativity and cause you to become involved with our College!
