Make a Difference

Become a Quick Center Champion and make the arts a vital part of your community!

qc_supportLocated in Fairfield County, Fairfield University's Quick Center for the Arts is a multi-faceted facility that presents a wide variety of high quality performances, lectures, and exhibits. Opened in 1990, the Quick Center serves a large and diverse population, and strives to serve this community as a place to gather for shared enrichment experiences, both artistic and educational. As an entity of Fairfield University, a Jesuit institution, the Quick Center for the Arts shares the Jesuit mission of developing the creative and intellectual potential of its constituents, including members of the Fairfield University community and the residents of greater Fairfield County.

This quality of programming isn’t possible without you! Ticket sales only cover a fraction of the cost of operating a world-class performing arts facility.

The Quick Center Arts Education and Outreach Fund was started in 2015 with the aim of developing infrastructure in support of the work we do to serve the broader community through meaningful educational programming. Through your donations and Membership support, you can impact the lives of thousands of young people each year. All proceeds from the Arts Education and Outreach Fund will support:

  • Our School Matinee Series, offering live theatre experiences to grades pre-k through 12, and free tickets to students in underserved communities
  • Transportation programs providing access for youth and families from neighboring communities and schools
  • Integrated school learning that positions Quick Center artists in school classrooms
  • Artist-in-residence programs that position teaching artists from the stage to lead educational and curriculum-based activities with local community groups and schools
  • Scholarships for underserved youth to participate in our summer camp programs and experience hands-on creativity and arts learning
  • Our new Quick Center Arts Incubator Program which integrates performing artists with educational programming for youth while simultaneously investing in the creation of new work by the artist.
