TEAM Walnut


TEAM Walnut connects Philadelphia's finest Teaching Artists to classrooms and boardrooms across the Delaware Valley. TEAM stands for Theatre Education Artist Match. These partnerships include artist residencies at area schools and community centers, professional development programs for educators, and teambuilding and staff development workshops for corporations and organizations. Each partnership provides individually-designed, high-quality theatre-education workshops with personal hands-on instruction.

Our programming is designed to reach students of any age, adults, and seniors. Our residencies are tailored to suit the specific needs of your organization. Residencies provide interactive and personal instruction to the groups we work with. The residency is individually designed, so it can be any length of time (1 day, 2 weeks, 1 month or even a year long), serve any population (including those with physical and learning disabilities), and work within your budget! Residencies can take place at your site or ours.

Past residencies have centered on such topics as:

In addition to the examples listed above, TEAM Walnut is adaptable to work with any curriculum goal or individual need. There is no limit to the possibilities we can achieve with a little TEAMwork!
