We Create Theatre with a Purpose

Our work has the power to deepen connections, promote understanding, and serve as a catalyst for change

We Invest in Atlanta

By creating a home for artists in Atlanta and investing in meaningful relationships with our community, we help build a brighter future for our city

We Live Our Values

Inclusion and a sense of belonging are part of who we are and central to how we work

In order to create an inclusive and safe space, and to move towards a more equitable future, we acknowledge the harms that have been and continue to be perpetuated against people of color in our theatre, our city, our country, and our world.

LAND ACKNOWLEDGEMENT

Long before the foundation of the state of Georgia, the territory which Atlanta now occupies was the home of the Muscogee (Creek) people.  During the Trail of Tears in the 1830s, many of these communities were forcibly removed from the state, and there was an intentional erasure of their cultural and religious practices as well as their individual rights.

We stand in solidarity with indigenous peoples across the United States. We recognize the harm caused to them by colonialism and commit to learning more about the true history of our region, and our place within it.
