Shifting Forms has been conceived as a multi-disciplinary ensemble of artists and community workers. Our work begins with the idea that we all have the capacity to improve the conditions of our world and our lives. The path to creating change begins with stimulating the imagination. Developing our innate ability to envision alternative possibilities is the first step toward community transformation.
We employ the tools of theatre and other arts to create aesthetic and educational experiences that enhance personal growth and community dialogue.
This work takes the form of trainings for educators and youth workers, arts-based workshops for youth and adults, development of new performance works, and cross-sector collaborations that meet the diverse needs of our partners.
