Widespread cuts to arts education over the past decade now mean we have an entire generation of young people with little exposure to the arts. Fewer members of the millennial generation go to the theater, concerts, dance performances, or operas.

Join us for a discussion that will look at ways to engage millennial audiences and how we can address this challenge.
