Organizer

Just Act

Just Act is an arts-based catalyst activating social change and healing in individuals, organizations and communities to build a just world.


ACTIVATE

COLLABORATE

TRANSFORM

We activate a local community's assets and hopes by collaborating with diverse groups and creatively facilitating communication amongst them to collectively generate solutions. The result is the creation of public spaces that promote people's health, well-being, and supporting leadership capacity that aligns with their core values.

Just Act provides educational programs, public dialogues, Theatre of the Oppressed training, and arts-based community engagement. At any Just Act event, people creatively share their experiences with oppression through arts-based strategies that allow them to collectively imagine and rehearse “just actions” for creating personal and community change.

 



Just Act directs our multi-dimensional expertise into being a resource for artists and cross-sector partners invested in diversity dialogue, developing action steps for social and systemic change, and in building authentic civic engagement capacity that grows community influence.



Just Act is an evolving ensemble of diverse, multi-disciplinary artist-facilitators who expertly lead collaborative community engagement initiatives, diversity and human development workshops, Theatre of the Oppressed trainings, and experiential public community events. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Practices from the world-famous Theatre of the Oppressed are our jumping off point for working at the intersection of theatre, social justice, anti-oppression facilitation and civic engagement to create community-driven responsive work that strengthens individual and collective power.

 Using arts-based tools for exploring human interaction, power and oppression, Just Act customizes its programs to the needs and assets of communities, groups and organizations with whom we work. This individualized focus supports programming so that participants may witness, debate, relate, reflect upon and re-see the realities within and around them, and create action steps to transform their community into a more equitable and thriving place for all.

What we provide

We offer refreshing, participatory opportunities for people to pause, creatively recharge, and courageously attend to fractured relations particularly around race, culture, and socio-economic disparities, tap hidden assets, and actualize aspirations for social justice. 

With new awareness and agency, you can directly apply the practical tools gained in our workshops to use in your own communities to creatively frame, explore and transform in
