Art - in its forms - is ultimately human expression. It is critical for communication, healing, sharing, documenting, teaching, and most importantly, building community.
We had grand plans for this historic building, both in restoring its architectural elements and restructuring it to suit our needs as a place to house art installations, theatre performances, and educational opportunities. We will continue to build our supporters and seek another venue. This is where we need as much help as you can give.
Through these arts we will build a cohesive community that shares and understands each other, themselves and the importance of protecting our shared environment.
I have a passion for theatre and giving back to the community, especially through the arts.
