Changing Lives performance by Creative Action

With all of the messages coming from the media, pop culture, our peers and their teachers, how do young people discover who they want to be?

Come see the final performance of the 2012-2013 Changing Lives Youth Theatre Ensemble.

Hear young artists perform the play they wrote, produced and created! 

Finding yourself in the digital age isn’t always easy. Media and pop culture are full of confusing messages that tell us who we should be, how to dress, what to buy and what to think. In a vortex of all this information, how can we discover the person we want to be? How can we navigate these messages and stay true to ourselves? How can we learn how to function in our relationships? How can we take responsibility and do what’s right, for ourselves and our peers?

Changing Lives is a group of teens who devise and perform original theatre pieces to ignite dialogue about teens' experiences and issues affecting schools and the community. The program is a  collaboration between Creative Action and SafePlace. This past year, the ensemble performed at middle and high schools across Austin for over 4,000 students! See some videos of the work we do!
