Free Virtual Field Trips

The Kimmel Cultural Campus is committed to inspiring students across our region with FREE arts education programs, even virtually. This last year we introduced Kimmel virtual field trips – taking students, teachers, families, and schools on journeys through the arts without ever leaving home.

More about Jazz4Freedom

Earlier in the pandemic, we expanded our signature Jazz4Freedom program and created a virtual residency for 4th-6th graders. Via Zoom, we asked students to find their voices and speak up about issues they care about; many talked about things they've seen in their neighborhoods or on the news recently, like homelessness, climate change, animal abuse, and racial injustice.

Registrations are now open for next season's Jazz4Freedom program, returing to in person for 2021/22!

#PhillyBeatz

Past Virtual Field Trip

Our FREE #PhillyBeatz virtual field trip featured demonstrations and performances from professional artists, inspired by content created by talented young people in our residency classes.

See what it's about:

#PhillyBeatz is our technology-based creativity celebration for 4th-6th graders. Using “Soundtrap for Education”, our teaching artists help students embrace creativity without the limitations of owning an instrument or having access to lessons. Beyond the musical tracks, we encourage kids to explore other forms of creativity - like dance, movement, spoken word, rap, and singing – and learn that creativity and the arts inspire us in other areas of our lives, too!

Registrations are now open for next season's #PhillyBeatz program, returning in person for 2021/22!
