The mission of the Contemporaries is to provide funding for the Cultural Activities Center (CAC) Temple, Bell County Texas, in support of the performing arts and visual arts with a major focus on opportunities for children to participate in activities that will stimulate a lifelong interest in the arts.
The members of the Contemporaries develop a ” hands-on” educational program which they assist over 2,000 third graders.
These students actively take part in the culture of a selected country through participation in music, dance, as actors in a traditional play, create an art object and touch artifacts from the country of study.
The Contemporaries serve as docents for the CAC’s Arts- in -Education program which consists of professional touring theatrical performances presented for students in our area.
The Contemporaries invite you to visit a meeting and consider joining this community organization and become involved in the excitement of the Arts!
