TeAda’s local programming is intended to support marginalized and communities of color through the arts. Under TeAda’s CreAtive Self-Care (CSC) workshop series local Los Angeles community members engage in a series of workshops that culminate with a final public performance. Through the use of TeAda’s methodology of combining theater exercises with social justice practices and healing methods, CSC workshop participants tap into a deeper sense of self and community. CSC participants from varied cultural Los Angeles communities come together through the performing arts to promote healing and solidarity. www.TEADA.org
