Sojourn Theatre and Catholic Charities USA
Building on the collaboration Catholic Charities USA and Sojourn Theatre began during the 2012 Annual Gathering in St. Louis; Sojourn Theatre (in partnership with the Center for Performance and Civic Practice) will continue its engagement with the CCUSA network through a series of workshops and conversations during Partners in Excellence events taking place between now and the 2013 Annual Gathering in San Francisco.
As “Artists-in-Residence”, Sojourn’s actors will not only perform pieces of the script from LEAN IN, the show they created for the 2012 Annual Gathering (view Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3), but they will also share creative tools for collaboration and use theatre-based dialogue to host a community wide conversation about poverty reduction.
