About Noise Now
Noise Now is an opportunity to expand our family by engaging with our neighboring communities and peer organizations. Noise Now is more than an audience development initiative – it is a commitment to being a great neighbor, to building relationships with audiences and artists, and to demonstrating our eagerness to listen well and respond courageously.
Noise Now is an enhanced commitment to being of service to all audiences. We aim to illuminate and elevate underrepresented populations, communities of color, young people, and all others not equitably represented in the theatre. In addition, we are activating non-traditional or underutilized spaces throughout the A Noise Within campus. We are excited to challenge ourselves, identify how disruptive we can push to be, and commit to making decisions “with” – as opposed to “for” – our audiences.
By expanding our artistry to include dance, music, art installations, non-traditional theatre and beyond, we are opening our home to audiences new to theatre and new to us, in addition to facilitating work that illuminates overlap between our mission and the missions of our collaborators.
By hosting increasingly inclusive events and pursuing partnerships with peer organizations, we aim to expand our reach and diversify our offerings. This is an opportunity to listen to our neighbors, identify who’s not in the room, and hold ourselves accountable to being flexible and working differently where appropriate.
Join us as we re-introduce ourselves, as we go outside our comfort zone, and as we ask how we can be of service to our neighborhood.
