Artists Activated

Four pictures of artists of various ages.

For nearly thirty years, BAX has made a deep and multi-faceted commitment to nurturing artists at all ages and stages.

The inter-mingling of young artists alongside emerging and established artists is at the core of BAX’s belief that generations inform each other, encouraging artists to see their practice, their work, and our broader culture through the lens of varied age and experience. This intentional approach expands our learning community and cultivates how we move from empathy to activism.

ARTISTS ACTIVATED is a series of programs that extend our collective activism and artistic practice through curating workshops, mini-residencies and performances/events.

The INTERGENERATIONAL WORKSHOP SERIES invite intergenerational audiences (ages 6 through adult seniors) to participate in interactive workshops that explore and embody identity using playful performing arts activities.
