Outreach Programs

Outreach programs range from short to long-term, providing many opportunities for partnerships and
collaborations with non-profit agencies, schools, local businesses and membership organizations. Projects
include performing at festivals, malls and community events, staffing informational booths, mask making,
holiday caroling, and so forth at a variety of venues around South Florida. Other partnerships have
included collaborations with schools and social service agencies to present programs that tackle
community challenges such as literacy, bullying, and health crisis. FLCT also provides arts integration
instruction and modeling with a variety of partner organizations.

Partnerships include providing workshops, classes, performances, performance opportunities, free tickets, production support, meeting and performance space, costume and sets, consulting and more.

Institute for Arts Integration

In partnership with Broward Cultural Division, FLCT is working to coordinate county-wide programming to better serve both the
providers and the constituents. Programs such as the Arts Education Directory, Kid Culture, and Arts in Health will all be managed
through The Institute. The School Board of Broward County committed space in their Gulfstream Early Learning Center site in Hallandale that will serve as a model arts integrated classroom. Programs also offer in-class demonstrations and professional development workshops for teachers to model arts-infusion techniques, with all activities are linked to educational standards.

A Bridge From Me To You

In 1993 FLCT’s Executive Artistic Director, Janet Erlick, created A BRIDGE FROM ME TO YOU to address the complex needs of South Florida’s ethnically diverse school community. It specifically focused on mutual respect, juvenile violence and bullying in public schools, with an emphasis on multiculturalism. Modified over the years to better meet the needs of South Florida’s youth, A BRIDGE FROM ME TO YOU continues to use theatre as a tool for community building and peaceful conflict resolution. BRIDGE celebrates the diversity of South Florida while also recognizing areas of commonality and shared experiences. Through improvisation, group discussions and writing, students question, brainstorm and discuss positive alternatives to bullying, name calling, fighting and juvenile violence in a safe forum. Each student actively participates as they identify and practice problem-solving skills, strategize about ways to handle difficult situations, and develop higher order thinking and social skills.

From Page To Stage

In 2002 Executive Artistic Director, Janet Erlick, created FROM PAGE TO STAGE to address concerns about student performance in reading and writing. PAGE uses theatre education games, exercises and techniques to bring written words to life, helping students improve their academic performance, with a particular emphasis on comprehension. Improved reading comprehension affects all assessments of student achievement, and assists children with writing, self-expression and other skills, critical to all areas of adult life. PAGE also provides classroom teachers with additional student assessment tools and supplemental arts-infused classroom activities that address a myriad of learning styles and abilities, including the special educational needs of students whose primary language is not English. PAGE can be offered as a multi-week in-school residency program or as individual one-day workshops.
