WAM Theatre empowers community through art. Community engagement is a central part of our activist mission. Each season, in accord with our main stage productions, we present invigorating conversations, professional development and devising ensembles that are responsive to the needs of the community and the time we are living in.
Our Community Engagement programming:
Provides brave, creative and supportive spaces for diverse groups of participants to explore social problems and imagine new possibilities through performance.
Encourages dialogue around complex issues in a community oriented and positive manner.
Increases access to the arts by providing subsidized tickets and free or paid opportunities to participate in our ensembles.
Works in collaboration with and in support of local social service-based organizations.
