Elm Street Cultural Arts Village recently launched a lineup of free arts programming titled “Elm Stream,” which is suitable for all ages and can be viewed from the safety and comfort of home.

The programming was created due to the arts center’s inability to hold live performances, classes and concerts due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

“Connection transcends distance and community is hardly confined to a place,” said Elm Street’s Executive Director Christopher Brazelton. “Even though we can’t create together in person, we need a platform like Elm Stream to make art still happen and to keep building community.” 

Each Monday, Elm Street will release a weekly schedule of storytimes, interviews, how-to’s, and more that can be streamed on their Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter accounts and can also be interacted with. These activities and videos will feature community members, actors from productions past and present, as well as musicians from around the world that will be part of their outdoor concert series the Lantern Series, which invites these artist to perform at Elm Street Cultural Arts Village. 

“If you enjoy the content we are creating and find it useful in your world, please consider a donation to Elm Street. Any amount is helpful in sustaining our organization as we navigate this evolving situation,” their website reads.

Audiences are able to view the current schedule of digital programming using the following website link: https://elmstreetarts.org/elm-stream-the-arts-come-to-you/. Elm Street will continue to provide updates on how the outbreak impacts the rest of their programming and the most up-to-date information will be available on their social media as well as their website.
