“We demand that the time is now for our city and world to be more inspired, to intentionally listen to the voices of the folks who have been traditionally kept out from mainstream spaces. We must continue to cultivate a culture of access, advocacy, and appreciation for the arts. Art is a tool for empathy and collaboration. We believe that if we create more affirmative and identifiable experiences in theatrical spaces ,more people will engage in the process of their own liberation.”
So states the mission of the Power Street Theatre Company, a theatrical organization founded by this week’s Portrait, Gabriela Sanchez.
