 Making theatre matter to more people.

Our Arts Engagement Department strengthens the Globe's connection with our neighbors, sharing with individuals and families a chance to experience theatre in many ways. We open new doors to creativity through theatre-based activities that encourage direct participation in art making, engaging our fellow San Diegans with every aspect of our institution. Our team is dedicated to making the Globe truly accessible through programs that are fun, participatory, innovative, and multigenerational.
