Hartford Performs brings visiting artists into Hartford Public Schools to teach curriculum in creative new ways. We take Hartford kids out to area arts organizations to ensure they experience professional dance, music, theater and museums. And we provide Hartford teachers with professional-learning programs that help them use art techniques in their classrooms to help kids learn and develop. Almost 14,000 students in all 30 PreK-Grade 8 public schools in our city benefit from our system each year.


Hartford Performs is seeking a part-time, temporary, grant-funded Project Manager scheduled to run from October 2018 through April 2019.  The position will support a Hartford Performs pilot project to add arts-integration programming to New Britain High School's physical education curriculum.  To learn more about the position and requirements to apply, click here.
