Falconworks Artists Group
Falconworks Artists Group is a not-for-profit organization whose mission is to empower communities and individuals through theater and applied drama. Founded in 1997 and incorporated in 2004, Falconworks achieves its aims through theater workshops that build our participants' and our community's capacity to analyze systems of oppression in order to effect change.
Falconworks promotes the principles of popular education which include dialogical approach, participant driven content, action/reflection and the goal of transformation.
"I believe that all the truly revolutionary theatrical groups should transfer to the people the means of production in the theater so that the people themselves may utilize them. The theater is a weapon, and it is the people who should wield it."
--Augusto Boal (1931 - 2009)
