PTA’s purpose is two-fold. First, we provide artists with the opportunity to use their gifts to serve others. Second, we inspire, educate, and engage with the community in the spirit of social justice. We connect artists with causes with a belief that art has the power to connect people to people and people to issues in a way that a speech at a podium or persuasive email never can. We have all been confronted with the insufficiency of words—language fails us. In light of this, we use theatre, dance, music, and visual arts to communicate through and connect your cause to the universal, powerful language of art. Ultimately, through the language of art, we seek to empower people—children, victims of social crimes, or even organization leaders in search of creative ways to engage donors, the general public, and our world at large in important social issues. In a simple turn of phrase: we’re a service organization for service organizations.
