Banners Engages


Banners Engages is an educational outreach program developed to increase the accessibility of arts and humanities programming to public, parochial, and home schools in parishes throughout Southwest Louisiana. The program includes live presentations at no cost to our local schools. These offerings include public library appearances and productions at one of the many wonderful venues on McNeese State University campus or off-site community locations. We even present unique moments by offering performances at your neighborhood school assembly. During each fall semester, Engages hosts 1-2 performances, with any area school welcomed. Our Cultural Season in the spring incorporates Engages into the series, typically including an evening show open to the public. Banners Engages is made possible through generous corporate sponsorships and charitable underwriters.
