Arts Access

Arts Access

The Arts Access Initiative is a program of the Joshua M. Freeman Foundation that offers year-round, high-quality, diverse arts experiences at no cost to participants. The initiative includes four programs designed to reach different audiences, including children, their families, and the underserved community at large. Those programs include Arts Education, Community Access, Young Audience Series and free evening programming at Freeman Arts Pavilion. Each year, more than 50% of all programming provided by the Joshua M. Freeman Foundation is free for participants through our Arts Access Initiative.

Community Partners

Young Audience Series

The Young Audience Series is a children’s programming series offered from May to September at Freeman Arts Pavilion. This live arts series is geared toward children in pre-k to grade 5, presented weekly at no cost to participants. The performances are diverse, genre-varying, high-quality arts experiences with artists from around the region, including award-winning children’s artists. The Young Audience Series creates an opportunity for our community at large to have a family-friendly experience and allows young children exposure to various types of arts through engagement, education and connection. 

Free Programming

From May through September, Freeman Arts Pavilion offers a variety of evening performances that are free to attend. The free programming includes high-quality and family-friendly live arts performances that engage the community at large and create an opportunity for individuals and families to come together at Freeman Arts Pavilion for a cultural connection. Genres include dance, music, theater, comedy, and a variety of ethnically and racially diverse programming to represent the Delmarva region and beyond.
