Education & Outreach

For all of our season productions, IU Auditorium strives to organize additional outreach events that complement our shows.

These outreach initiatives are organized to serve several purposes. They provide a greater contextual understanding of a show, generate a deeper artistic experience, create an opportunity for social networking, or offer individuals the chance to expand their knowledge in the field of arts and entertainment.

These events take on several forms, including but not limited to:

  • Guest lectures
  • Cast interactions
  • Demonstrations
  • Masterclasses
  • Workshops
  • Venue tours
  • Educational panels
  • Receptions

Through April 2019, over 5,500 students, guests, and patrons participated in educational outreach opportunities and events in conjunction with the 2018–2019 season.
