Here in Rochester there is a tale of two cities; one is a vibrant, culture and arts-rich, craft beer and foodie town and one is culture-rich but art-starved where families struggling below or at the poverty line don't bother to even dream of a subscription to an arts institution out of their budget range. It's unimaginable these invisible lines separating people from art and creativity in their lives could even exist especially seeing that they have two important resources in common; PEOPLE and the culture they bring with them.
I knew I would come back to this neighborhood someday and the timing couldn't be better! I'm soooo ready to provide the artistic direction, blood and sweat needed to make this happen that I can taste it! The Avenue Blackbox provides year-round FREE THEATER FOR KIDS, address-based sliding scale membership, music and drama workshops, theatre tech training and more.
