VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY) — The Virginia Beach Cultural Affairs Department is hosting “#VBArts On Tour,” at various venues across the city this summer.

The pilot program consists of several small, low-tech street-performer style performances that aims to re-engage the community with live performances.

“The performing arts have a profound impact on our local economy,” said Hillary Plate, Cultural Programming and Grants Coordinator with the Virginia Beach Cultural Affairs Department. “From ticket sales, to restaurant business, to set-builders, crew members, and more, the performing arts are a job and revenue generator. It’s important to help restart that engine.”
