PROJECT: TRANSFORM

Stage One, the young professional arm of the Hartford Stage Board of Trustees, has launched a crowdfunding campaign to revitalize Project: Transform, an innovative Education @ Hartford Stage performance program for Connecticut high school students celebrating diversity and acceptance. Project: Transform is a free program that brings together 20 students from different backgrounds including race, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation and social class—to create and perform a devised theatre piece exploring the transformation of minds, neighborhoods and communities. Students work collectively with acclaimed guest artists, using poetry, theatre, music and dance to write, improvise, rehearse and share their collaborative piece in a public performance open to the community.

The crowdfunding campaign ran from Monday, April 8, through Friday, April 26. An initial corporate gift of $10,000 from Locke Lord, LLC began the campaign and your contributions helped us be able to fully implement the program next season. Your continued gift of any size can help enhance this program back returning to our community!
