Artist Reflection Series: Bond Street Theatre Creates Joy Through Performance Art

Bond Street Theatre is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting peace and cultural understanding through theatre arts. Since 1976, they've been to various conflict areas, bringing their theatre-based programs for education, healing, and empowerment to people experiencing poverty and oppression.

The Theatre for Social Development project helps arts organizations use their creativity for social improvement by partnering with Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) to help bring their services to the public. Bond Street has been working in Afghanistan since 2002, partnering with local theatre groups to create peace building projects for youth and adults. They have been to over 40 countries worldwide, including Pakistan, India, Kosovo, Bosnia, Albania, Colombia, Brazil, Venezuela, Haiti, Indonesia, China, Myanmar, Turkey, Israel and Palestine.

We are excited to have them here in Seattle as part of our Moisture Festival Artist Reflection Series. On Monday, April 4, they will be here to present about the work they do to bring joy and happiness through theatre to countries experiencing poverty, war, and conflict. This informative presentation will be free, with donations suggested. Please join us to learn more about this amazing group!
