Support Summer Institute
Support brave new voices in theatre! Summer Institute is our three-year leadership development program that trains teens to use their passion for the arts to promote social justice and equity. Each year our students gather for four weeks to critically engage with the issues affecting them and the world. They examine the relationship between power, systems of oppression, protest, and liberation. They come together regardless of differences across race, class, gender, sexuality, religion, or political ideology. They meet. They discuss. They dream of a better world. Our students explore who they are and discover their own power to make change.
