The Lives We Impact

Our Values

We are committed to creating socially engaged arts programming. We are committed to working with communities who have traditionally not had access to creating, producing, and experiencing live theatre. We value the role of the artist and citizen. We believe that there is dignity in every person's story, and each has a right to be heard.

It’s important to us to be clear about what we do as we provide place based arts  to communities in need. This list details our recent initiatives :
