Educational programming in the Music Box Village is one of the many ways that New Orleans Airlift works to fulfill its mission to collaborate to inspire wonder, connect communities, and foster opportunities through arts education and the creation of experimental public artworks. Our offerings often change throughout the year as we integrate educational objectives into our performances and large-scale projects, and weave in new collaborators.

Programs have included adult welding classes, student concerts, Airlift's Hometown Heroes Summer Camp, Girls Tool School, and field trips for students K-12.
