Arts for Everyone

Launched in 2014, Arts for Everyone is ECA’s $2 ticket program for low-income school groups, families and older adults. With the objective to increase access to the performing arts, ECA has committed to provide a minimum of 30% of seats at Education Matinees and an unlimited number of tickets at Saturday Matinees and Sunday Films (pending availability) at this reduced rate.

School Groups

Over 2,500 students attended an Education Matinee in 2017/18 through the Arts for Everyone program. Eligibility for these reduced-price tickets is based on a school’s overall percentage of students on Free and Reduced-Price Meal programs.

To participate, teachers are invited to apply on a by-performance basis. Priority will be given to schools with 30% or higher of students on Free and Reduced-Price Meal programs. Allocation of Arts for Everyone tickets is at ECA’s discretion based on both a school’s level of need, and the order in which groups apply. Teachers will be notified of whether they have received Arts for Everyone tickets two months in advance of each performance.
