If you saw a performance of Red, you probably encountered Teen Council’s young arts advocates on your way out. They stood with buckets full of bracelets, asking for donations to help fund their trips to Washington, D.C. and Boston to advocate for arts education.

Between their calls to “Claim your arts” and the generosity of Berkeley Rep’s patrons, we were able to raise over three times our goal for the campaign, give out over 1,000 bracelets, and learn the last scene of Red by heart!


Next on the fundraising docket in our effort to send our advocates from coast to coast:
