Through MELSA, library patrons from across the metro area can ‘check-out’ tickets to performances by arts organizations by using the smARTpass program. The program is designed to provide an opportunity for library patrons to learn about and to engage in a wide array of arts experiences, creating new arts enthusiasts and supporters while at the same time helping arts organizations build their audiences from the wide demographic cross-section of residents who use public library services.

This program offers performing arts organizations flexibility to offer tickets on their own terms, run reports, and get email addresses for those who take advantage of the free tickets. Another big plus is that the site limits users to one pair of free tickets to each partner organization per year, ensuring that the tickets offered are going to the largest number of unique visitors.  To find out more come hear from Sally Lederer, Communications Manager for MELSA (Metropolitan Library Service Agency). There will be time for questions and discussion to determine if smARTpass is a way to help your organization build audiences.
