We still need your help!

May 12, 2017

Thank you all so much for your support.

This project is a result of a well-received series of events we offered last season. During the 2016-17 season, with the support from the National Endowment for the Arts, we hosted Blind Boys of Alabama, Josh Blue and Axis Dance Company. We were also thrilled to provide performances for children on the autism spectrum and their family members. The Paludan Sisters performed two musical shows and Chicago Children's Theatre presented "Red Kite, Brown Box."

"Red Kite, Brown Box" is a theatre piece that features Papa Nick, a loving father who has just moved his family into their new home. Trouble is, Papa Nick’s kids are having a hard time going to sleep, because they would rather explore and find treasures in the empty moving boxes still strewn around the house. They use a visual itinerary throughout the adventure to keep children feeling informed and secure to help alleviate stress and anxiety related to having a new experience.

See how this performance impacted the community in this great video. 

Please share this with your friends and encourage them to help bring performances to the Lied Center that promote diversity and inclusion in a safe environment.

 

Thank you, 

The Lied Center Team

 

Thank you! We are at 14% of our Goal

May 02, 2017

Hello, Thank you so much for helping fund performing arts by, for and about people with disabilities. Last season we hosted the Blind Boys of Alabama, Josh Blue and two sets of performances for children on the autism spectrum. They were presented by the Paludan Sisters and Chicago Children's Theatre. 

It is with your support that we can continue this important line of work. Help us reach our goal by sharing the link to our Launch KU site with your friends via email or on social media!
