Banners Engages

engages web headerOne of the most important responsibilities of Banners is to engage local students in educational programming through arts and humanities performances.

This programming helps to ensure that children develop creativity, innovation and entrepreneurial thinking. Studies have also shown that children who are involved in the arts are more likely to be recognized for academic achievement, be elected to class office within their schools and win awards for school attendance.

Banners provides educational outreach efforts that include presentations by artists visiting our local public and private schools, as well as the public library. These presentations include performances as well as educational components. Each year, more than 17,000 students reap the benefits of having Banners educational outreach performances as part of their learning environment. With approximately 60 outreach programs annually, Banners brings arts and humanities to K-12 schools throughout Calcasieu, Cameron and Jeff Davis Parishes and the students of McNeese State University.
