Hartford Performs is an independent, non-profit, arts-education collaborative serving students in the Hartford Public School system. Our mission is to connect all Hartford Public School students to quality arts experiences that advance student learning and deepen engagement in community. We bring teaching artists into Hartford classrooms and Hartford students out to the region’s cultural venues to present school curriculum in creative ways that reach students of all learning styles. This school year, we are delivering nearly 850 programs to 14,000 students in all of Hartford’s PreK-Grade 8 schools. We also provide professional-learning workshops to Hartford’s teachers and the 150 teaching artists who deliver our programs.
