Cultural Engagement

The Cultural Engagement program in Montclair State University's Office of Arts and Cultural Programming involves students, faculty, and community members in creative and intellectually stimulating education events that connect audiences with artists from around the globe.  Share reflections and comments with artists and fellow audience members at a post-performance Community Conversation, get a behind-the-scenes peek into some of our most exciting and challenging productions at a pre-show Sneak Peek, or mix and mingle with the artists at an informal lobby reception.  Ask a question, get an insider's view, learn the story behind the story.  All engagement events are free and open to the public.
