Edmonds Center for the Arts Presents 5th Annual Kidstock!
On Saturday, February 4, 2017, Edmonds Center for the Arts (ECA) presented the 5th annual Kidstock!, a FREE arts celebration for children and families. As the cornerstone of ECA’s Family Series, Kidstock! engages children from a young age in diverse and exciting arts experiences. The event ran from 9:30 am-3:30 pm, and featured musical performances, theatre, arts education workshops, and activities for kids throughout the ECA campus. ECA welcomed over 2,000 people of all ages to this community event.
Providing access to the arts is at the heart of ECA’s mission, and Kidstock! is just one way ECA strives to accomplish this important goal. Every season, ECA presents a diverse selection of Education Matinees — theatre, music and cultural performances for students from pre-K to 12th grade. Tickets to these performances are available to schools with financial need through ECA’s Arts for Everyone program, which offers $2 tickets based on a school’s overall rate of students on Free and Reduced-Price Meal programs. This year, Arts for Everyone expanded into ECA’s 4-performance Family Series, so that families and friends of students on Free and Reduced-Price Meal programs can now attend these Saturday morning matinees at $2/ticket.
In addition to programs for students on the ECA campus, each year ECA engages approximately 2,500 young people through free in-school outreach programs with professional performing artists, and organizes an expanding roster of week-long Summer Arts Enrichment Camps.
