- - - - Our Shared Values - - - -
We increase awareness about the broad range of work happening in Austin’s vibrant theatre community, bolster its appeal, and make access to information about it simple and centralized. We listen to audiences and theatre artists. 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.
ATX Theatre is committed to fostering a sense of belonging for audiences and within the theatremaking community. We strive to embody both the compassionate philosophies of anti-racism, equity, diversity, inclusion, and accessibility, AND the actions and policies they require. Treating each other with respect is core to all our interactions. We highlight under-appreciated and under-resourced companies and artists.
We support all theatregoing and theatre-making across organizational boundaries. ATX Theatre affiliates serve the public together, sharing resources and information to improve the health of the sector as a whole. We are mindful to uphold the public’s experience of Austin theatregoing. We honor all who contribute time, thought, energy and/or tangible resources towards our collective vision.
ATX Theatre unites theatergoers and theatremakers to:
build welcoming, vibrant community;
boost theatre accessibility;
expand the local creative economy;
and diversify Austin’s creative reputation to reflect its cultural variety.
Our Collective Vision
