The National Theatre Foundation partnered with Children’s National Hospital in 2019 to host live performing arts experiences for young patients and their families. We successfully continued to provide the joy of the performing arts to Children’s National during the COVID-19 pandemic through filmed workshops that featured local artists. Artists Alex and Olmsted created puppet making workshops for children on the Dialysis Unit at the hospital, and hip-hop organization Words, Beats & Life guided patients to make their own hip-hop beats. Starting in the fall of 2022 we’re excited to resume in person programming in the Costco Wholesale Main Atrium!
