A THEATRE-BASED CATALYST FOR COMMUNITY ACTIVISM

& PERSONAL CHANGE

 

Just Act ignites public dialogue and action planning using theatre-based tools with collaborating partners invested in making meaningful social and civic change. As a multi-dimensional resource across sectors, Just Act is a distinctive, innovative hybrid of artistic and community engagement.

Through a spectrum of aesthetic, activist & educational tools, we:


  1. Activate creative strategies for groups to collectively imagine & rehearse just actions for change.


  1. Advance interpersonal and citizenship skills by bringing out participants’ innate creativity.


  1. Catalyze positive relationships among people in places, and relationships between people and their place.


  1. Enliven empathy & increase understanding and awareness about human interaction, the roles we play and the impact of choices in combatting injustice.


  1. Strengthen personal & community capacity for civic engagement


  1. Collaboration and relationship-building are central to Just Act. We customize our program designs to meet our partners’ needs while deepening and strengthening our own theatre practices.
