The PowerUp! program is designed to increase access to Norfolk’s many arts, entertainment and cultural amenities by offering free or discounted admission and/or membership fees to low-income residents.
We believe the arts, culture and recreational opportunities enrich our neighborhoods and our residents. We seek to ensure that all our residents can participate in these powerful and empowering educational opportunities.
