Art plays a vital role in the creation of a healthy society. We believe in the power of art to affect social change. That is why Plowshares Theatre Company has been dedicated to the act of giving back to our community with award-winning productions, community-based outreach programming, or unique educational programs designed to increase awareness and celebrate difference. since its founding nearly 30 years ago. This year, we have the opportunity to continue to make a significant impact by joining in on a philanthropic movement that has been spreading worldwide. It’s called #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back.
What is #GivingTuesday?
#GivingTuesday celebrates the act of giving – on the Tuesday following Black Friday and Cyber Monday. On November 28, 2017, Plowshares Theatre Company’s community will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give. It is the opportunity to join more than 98 countries around the world in encouraging giving on #GivingTuesday.
