When they hear theatre they think of the high school musical or Shakespeare. Maybe they are a theatre-goer so they think that everyone who does theatre has to be an actor. There's no So You Think You Can Facilitate Civic Engagement on television. We started Via Arts is because of the lack of hands on theatre in our community. The catch is our community doesn't know what it is -because there isn't anyone doing it. "Aye, there's the rub."- As Billy Shakes would say.Read More
I love my my job!
It never hurts to start from the basics
People know the arts are important- they are just scared to jump in.
Some people have been taught that the arts are just for "those people"
No matter your job STORYTELLING is at the core of the human experience
Being surrounded by hundreds of kids and many brilliant minds- I think it is abundantly clear that being able to tell a story is important. That's what theatre and the arts teach us to do. Whether we make it up, witness it, or discover it the only way we share what we do with the person sitting next to us it through stories.
So we need the arts!
Let the arts tell the story of elements bonding into molecules.
Let the arts show us the big win!
Let the arts open our imagination so we can build anything.
Let the arts be a part of your life.
FULL STEAM AHEAD!
