In light of recent events, we thought it was important to tell you why CARE Actor was created.
Our vision is, and has always been, to use theater arts as a tool to foster kindness, love, and empathy in children so that they become conscious leaders of tomorrow. Through storytelling, we help them find their unique voice so that one day they can stand up for what they believe in. And yes, we love to get silly and have fun in the process too.
While our program is often filed under the category of a “recreational” activity or “enrichment” program, we see it as a vital asset in building a safer community. Many kids as young as four have told me they’ve been made fun of or bullied. So, we talk about it. We talk about how the parts of us that seem weird or odd to others are in fact a strength. We talk about the importance of valuing one another and embracing differences. We talk, write and act out stories as a way to express our innermost feelings.
CARE Actor stands for LOVE.
That means we love and accept all communities and types of people.
We believe in using our voice towards social justice, equality, and creating a safer world.
We believe theater has a transformative power to impact hearts and minds in a healthy way.
This is what we believe.
We hope you’ll continue to stand with us in these beliefs so that together we can make the world a better place.
