Funds raised with our auction help to steward racial equality through both a photography contest, and through the play "Guarding the Bridge" with spoken word artist Dawn Speaks. Talk-backs with educators occur after each engagment. These works help to unveil our blind spots and move us forward, with agency, toward a more just society.
We welcome your online pre-bid, and also hope you will join us at the gala on February 13th, 2018. You may get gala tickets through our site: http://rippleeffectartists.com/ .
At Ripple Effect Artists, Inc. (REA) we leverage theatre for a teachable moment, addressing challenging issues faced in the U.S. and globally. Our mission states: we address injustice and cause social impact through art - primarily by producing masterful plays - presenting them along with talk-back discussions in partnership with educators and advocacy groups. These events, our education, and our game-changing philanthropy cultivate empathy, shift audiences from APATHY to ACTION, and create a RIPPLE EFFECT in the larger community.With every production we are giving back in three ways: educating our audience about critical current issues, leading theatre workshops for high school students, and partnering with an advocacy group. Currently we are in our 8th season. Over the years we have brought to stage issues such as bullying, marriage equality, technology unemployment, human trafficking and more.
