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.
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.
We support each other across organizational boundaries, sharing resources and information. ATX Theatre affiliates serve the public together. We are mindful to uphold the public's experience of Austin theatre-going as a whole, and are supportive of the health of our entire sector. We honor all who contribute time, thought, energy and/or tangible resources towards our collective vision.
