A new initiative that opens our doors to more young people
Research continues to show that engaging with the arts has enormous benefits for young people - academically and socially. MTC Education's new access program MTC EXPLORE aims to ensure those experiences are for the many, rather than the few. By providing opportunities for young people to connect, both as audience and as participant, this program can create truly transformative experiences. MTC EXPLORE has four components:
