Mission Statement

Just Act is a theatre-based catalyst for healing, change and activism to build a just world. We provide: * Theatre of the Oppressed training *educational programs focused on justice, equity, diversity and inclusion, *arts and asset-based community-based engagement projects and participatory events where people creatively share their experiences with oppression through strategies that allow them to collectively imagine and rehearse just actions for creating personal and community change. In these times of anxiety, bustle and disconnection, Just Act offers refreshing, participatory "refuel zones" to creatively pause and attend to tension and fractured relations around race, culture, and socio-economic disparities to reweave connections and grow empathy, understanding, as well as action and advocacy plans for transformation from the inside out.

Description

Just Act, a hybrid of artistic and community-based engagement committed to social justice, has established a growing reputation for excellence in applied theatre and arts-based programming, strengthening the capacity of people and organizations to transform divisive social, systemic and personal challenges into strategies for individual and collective change. Through Just Act’s mission as a theatre and arts-based catalyst for healing, change and activism to build a just world, we apply the principles of Theatre of the Oppressed to ignite critical thinking and unite community members for collective action. We are remapping popular theatre as an active participant in civic dialogue and social action. Just Act’s commitment to social justice guides our collaborative partnerships to build the capacity of individuals and communities who are systematically discriminated against and those in solidarity with them. Our goal is to utilize our skills as theatre artists to implement programming that increases knowledge and awareness related to the needs and assets of community members, to facilitate the capacity to strengthen formal/informal networks to address shared interests and injustices, and to transform new insights about intractable issues into positive strategies for change.
