Act Locally, Create Globally
We will provide space where community initiatives can take place.
Imagination in collaboration is a powerful thing.
As mentioned in our vision, 150 is commited to facilitating collaborative creative projects that address some of the world's most pressing needs. Even as we seek to act locally throught arts-focused events and initiatives, we also want to create globally: to utilize the arts as means to support global justice and compasion causes.
We have developed strategic partnerships out of these efforts. One of them is with an organization call Freedom in Creation, an incredible nonprofit organization that empowers war affected children in Uganda (some of them former child soldiers) through art therapy. In fact, the art created by the kids becomes a means for raising funds so that clean water wells can be established in their home villages. This results in healing for both the children and the villages.
New Moon has hosted benefit concerts/events for Freedom in Creation, ANEW place, Moldovan Orphans and local agencies. The dramatic production, A Doll's House was recently performed in the Cafe for the benefit of Spectrum Youth and Family Services.
