Education and Community Engagement


Grounded in the vision of the Hobby Center Foundation is the philosophy of serving the whole community and reflecting the contemporary spirit that is unique to Houston. As a cultural organization invested in quality, diversity and community, our mission is to bring world-class entertainment and innovative works that reflect the various cultures and expansive diversity within our city to performing arts lovers, and perhaps most importantly, to inspire the next generation of performers and patrons.

The Foundation is fulfilling its mission through dynamic partnerships with local, national and international artists and organizations to provide innovative programming. The intimate 500-seat theater, Zilkha Hall, provides a state-of-the-art Theater District home for many Houston arts groups. Ingrained in this outreach effort is the Hobby Center’s cultural identity.

To learn more about these initiatives, please contact Steve Scott, Audience Services Manager, at steve@thehobbycenter.org.
