About our Programming
Welcome to the ConocoPhillips Hub for Inspired Learning, where Arts Commons becomes the springboard into curiosity and imagination! The place where students and teachers are immersed in opportunities to explore the Performing and Visual Arts as it connects to each classes' curriculum. Students are also given a peek behind the scenes to engage in the technical side of theatre.

At the ConocoPhillips Hub for Inspired Learning, students connect with industry experts for hands-on learning that promotes creative bravery while connecting to the joy of discovery alongside their peers. 

Students are supported in the Hub to be their best, always, encouraged to do the right thing, and invited to lead with an open mind and heart. Teachers and Students will leave transformed having made discoveries about themselves, their community, and the world around them. 

What we value:
We are looking for individuals who share our vision of building a creative and compassionate society, inspired through the arts. Our team is made up of people with a diverse range of interests — singers, actors, musicians, playwrights, coaches, teachers, gamers, bakers, photographers, athletes, dancers.

People with open minds, hearts, and arms.
