Theater By and For Communities

Falconworks Artists Group is a not-for-profit organization whose mission is to support and empower communities and individuals through theater that addresses personal and local issues. Founded in 1997 and incorporated in 2004, Falconworks offers the opportunity for each of our program participants to reflect on the reality of their lives, to ask questions, and discover their own power to make a positive change. Our current activities include workshops in play-writing and performance that encourage individuals to tell their own stories; partnerships with community-based organizations to develop theater that educates audiences and participants about pressing local issues; and mentoring by theater professionals and collaborations in theater that promote self-worth.

This is a great event - come out and support these kids, this worthy organization and the great work they do.
