PORT ANGELES, WA – Field Arts & Events Hall has announced that enrollment for 2022-2023 Peninsula Performs! arts education programs is now open to local educators.
Peninsula Performs! is a new arts education program that connects arts providers directly to students and educators in the Port Angeles School District.
