We present multiple opportunities for students and young adults to participate in the arts through onsite programming and the Marin County Fair. We partnered with the Marin Independent Journal’s Music reviewer Paul Liberatore to curate what we call The IJ Lobby Lounge Live. Our partnership gives young Marin musicians an opportunity to perform live in front of 350 people in the Marin Center’s Showcase Theater, some of whom are then chosen to perform live in front of thousands of people at the Marin County Fair. 2017 was our second year of collaboration and this year we have set up a fund with the Marin Independent Journal to be able to give these young people or their school groups grants to help keep their artistry going.
The Marin Cultural Association is also working to expand multi-cultural theatre presentations in Marin County. In the upcoming Marin Center season, MCA is partnering with Brian Copeland Presents to bring to Marin County six extraordinary solo shows curated by Brian Copeland, The Best of San Francisco Solo Series. He has chosen a culturally diverse group of performers telling their often funny, always humane stories for Marin audiences who typically would not be exposed to this genre of art.
Past shows have also included Shaolin Warriors and Neil Berg's 50 Years of Rock and Roll.
