Welcome to the DC Collaborative’s Arts for
Every Student Catalogue 2013-2014
Dear Principals and Teachers,
We are pleased to provide you with a selection of high-quality arts and humanities experiences to benefit
students from across Washington, DC.
In these pages you can plan some of the highlights of the academic year, making a lasting impression on
your students, some of whom will be experiencing professional theater and museum arts exhibitions for the
very first time.
We provide arts experiences to thousands of students each year with a total of more than 400,000 students
taking field trips through Arts for Every Student (AFES) since our founding. We are entering our 15th year of
providing free transportation and tickets to DC public and chartered public school students and are looking
forward to growing our stellar roster of members; adding to our listing of arts experiences; and delivering
services to more students.
We invite you to explore our catalogue featuring a wide variety of arts opportunities for students of all ages.
Explore the many wonderful arts institutions which offer spectacular arts experiences that will advance your
curriculum and readily map to standards and to the Teaching and Learning Framework.
Washington, DC, is home to some of the greatest arts institutions in the world and each DC student studying
Shakespeare should see it acted on the stage through a Shakespeare Theatre Company production at the
Harman Center for the Arts; and each DC student studying U.S. History should have the chance to see the
Star-Spangled Banner on display at the National Museum of American History. These are just two examples of
how curriculum can become dynamic and engaging by connecting with the significant resources here in our
backyard.
We are committed to ensuring all students have access to the arts and humanities, because we believe arts
access leads to student success.

What is the DC Arts and Humanities
Education Collaborative?
The DC Arts and Humanities Education Collaborative
works to strengthen and promote the arts and
humanities as basic and integral to a high-quality
education for all students in DC public and chartered
public schools. Comprised of more than 70 arts and
cultural organizations, DC Collaborative initiatives
include: Arts for Every Student, Professional
Development for Teachers and Arts Educators, and
the Arts Education Initiative.
What is Arts for Every Student?
Arts for Every Student (AFES) provides increased
access for all DC public and charter school students
to attend arts and cultural events offered by our
member providers. Through this program, DC public
and charter schools are eligible for free tickets and
transportation to local cultural events, supported
by the DC Collaborative. Schools with PreK-K and
high school students may select a free in-school
performance as an alternative to a trip to a cultural
venue.
Professional Development Workshops also are
offered through the DC Collaborative member
providers to DC Public School and Public Charter
School teachers. These workshops offer teachers the
opportunity to learn innovative ways to invigorate
classroom instruction by using arts techniques.
Teachers work with experienced arts educators to
learn to use dance, music, theatre, visual arts,
and the humanities to teach academic lessons and
address Common Core and other State Learning
Standards. The Professional Development Workshops
can be submitted to OSSE for Professional Learning
Units (PLU) credits towards relicensure. Please see
the separate Professional Development Brochure for
program information.

Introduction to Arts for Every Student
(AFES) Preview Catalogue
To make your experience with the AFES
Online Registration system easier, we’ve
created this preview guide of event offerings
at cultural organizations. If you are the Key
Communicator for your school, please feel
free to print multiple copies and distribute to
colleagues in your school building. This will
help your colleagues select a trip that best fits
their grade grouping’s learning goals and plans
for the year.
How to use this preview
catalogue:
For the Arts for Every Student (AFES)
program, the first page of this guide lists
all the events by grade grouping in a grid,
with corresponding curriculum ties. This
grid is a helpful tool to match up classroom
learning with a selected event. After the grid,
in-school performances and workshops are
listed alphabetically; followed by fieldtrip
opportunities. Each of these AFES events
are accompanied by coded-working key that
indicates appropriate grade level. Each event
will consist of a brief description of the event,
date(s) offered, time(s), location, and curriculum
ties.
TRIP CANCELLATION POLICY
• Trips must be cancelled 30 days in advance.
• If 30 days in advance, Key Communicators must cancel trips using

tickets and any transportation fees incurred.
• Phone calls will not be honored for trip cancellations.
TICKET REDUCTION POLICY

Online Registration System more than 30 days in advance of an

Gold
Presented by: John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts
Five bow-tied dancers who tap, spin, and tumble. Balls
that bounce, zip, and zing at lightning speed. Bright red
chairs that slide in and out of the light. And pesky little
bugs that scurry underfoot. Renowned for its trademark
playful approach, Canada’s Cas Public dance ensemble
uses everyday sounds and objects to explore the joy,
humor, and mischief of childhood—all performed to
Canadian pianist Glenn Gould’s famous recording of Johann
Sebastian Bach’s Goldberg Variations. Mixing whimsical
movement with gliding video panels, dynamic lighting
effects, and percussive clapping and stomping, GOLD
becomes a frolicsome hide-and-seek celebration of the
spirit of youth. Says Montreal’s La Presse: Cas Public “has
a finely balanced sense of fun and an ability to convey
sophisticated emotions in ways that both young and older
can understand.”

together. At its
core lies a collection of four Maltese folktales, presented by
a traditional storyteller accompanied by a live piano. The
animations have been developed to reflect the style of
shadow puppetry. The ‘digital puppets’ are highly
ornamented with decorative performances inspired from
Maltese baroque motifs, filigree and traditional lace. As the
actor narrates the folktales, a video sequence is projected
as a backdrop to the performance and the characters from
the stories come to life on the screen.

Pappelapapp
Presented by: Germany
A cardboard box is a cardboard box. Or is it? With some
fantasy, a box can change into a cardboard tiger, dragon
or human being that experiences emotions. A simple brown
cardboard box can hold the key to a universe of adventures
and funny figures. In this simple play that works through
imaginary metamorphosis, Pappelapapp uses children’s
imaginations to transform an ordinary item into something
magical. After the performance, children will be able to
play in their own cardboard universe.
