PTP Partnerships

CELEBRATING OUR CULTURES THROUGH THEATRE

In the PTP Partnerships, our team of experienced teaching artists collaborate with 1618 elementary, middle and high schools, primarily in Upper Manhattan, to provide student-centered, culturally-sustaining, and experiential theatre curricula to approximately 900 K–12 students, many of whom are Multilingual Learners.

Over 15 weekly sessions, students work together with their teaching artist to create a multi-disciplinary theatrical collage that celebrates the cultures represented in the classroom. Through this process, students build their creative capacity, celebrate their culture, and discover the power of community and collaboration through theatre.
