Tell us about yourself and your organization
I'm a performer, writer, theatre creator, arts educator and advocate. My organization Thatz Showbiz Theatre Project uses theatre to educate, empower and for social change. Young people come to us to gain theatre based creative tools that they can then take out into the world, into their communities and make them better. Some of our students go on to have successful careers as performers while others use their tools to effect positive change in themselves and those around them in other ways. It's important to me that everyone gains an understanding of the many important contributions theatre practitioners can provide and the many facets of being an artist. There are a wide range of vocations available to creatives, it's our job to help young people discover those.
