Future Planning

The Appell Center is undergoing a process to engage with members of the York community, having conversations about the ways we can better learn and engage through the performing arts. This work aims to amplify voices of York County artists, educators, parents, youth, and organizations to inform broader dialogues about the role of the arts in education and collaborations between cultural and education systems.


Our Learning Vision is to be a cultural hub for the community, and a connecting point for the diverse voices of York County.


In July 2022, the Appell Center began collaborating with Creative Generation to convene York residents to learn about the ways they engage civically, creatively, and interpersonally with the arts, arts education, and the Appell Center and its theatres. Learn more about the collaboration here.


As of September 2022, we have completed the first part of our work together. A downloadable version of the draft Executive Summary is included.
