Awareness

 

We increase Austin’s awareness about our vibrant community’s broad range of work, bolster its appeal, and make accessing it simple and centralized. We listen to each other and to our audiences. We pay attention to constructive and destructive trends in our sector. We strive to include, engage, know and celebrate every theatre artist in Austin — and help audiences do the same. 

Belonging

 

We are deeply committed to fostering a sense of belonging within the theatre community and for audiences. We highlight under-appreciated and under-resourced companies and individuals doing important work that reflects these three values. We strive to embody both the compassionate philosophies of anti-racism, equity, diversity, inclusion, and accessibility, AND the actions and policies they require — even when doing so is less than comfortable. 

Collaboration

 

We support each other across organizational boundaries, sharing resources and information when possible. ATX Theatre board members agree to serve the good of our sector as a whole, rather than one company, in all board activities. We honor all who contribute time, thought, energy and/or tangible resources towards our collective vision.

Our Collective Vision

Theatre-going in Austin is connective, easy & fun. “I can’t wait to go again!”

Theatre-making in Austin is prosperous, sustainable & welcoming. “This is a theatre town.”

*Community-Centric Fundraising is a fundraising model that is grounded in equity. We prioritize the entire community over individual organizations, foster a sense of belonging and interdependence, present our work not as individual transactions but holistically, and encourage mutual support between nonprofits.
