What is ENCORE?

The Virginia and Harvey Kimmel Family ENCORE program events are participatory, artistic experiences that are offered in many different forms and customized to our Members’ needs. They can be created to complement ticketed activities, like single-session or multi-session workshops or as residencies, deepening artistic engagement and fostering educational exploration. These programs are designed to shift experience from observation into participation and deepen the cultural experience.

ENCORE is made possible by a leadership gift from Virginia and Harvey Kimmel through the Virginia and Harvey Kimmel Fund. The fund also supports the Kimmel Award for Accessible Experience each year at the Art-Reach spring Brunch and Cultural Access Awards.

ENCORE Artist Workshops

ENCORE Artist Programs include artist-led workshops that activate individuals from our Member Organizations to become participants in arts and culture: dance, movement, music, theater and visual art.
