The H.E.A.T. Collective was founded by Artistic Director Jessica Litwak to create, advocate and inspire artistic expression rooted in healing, education, activism, and theatre. We work to build collectives in every context: in our performances, workshops and community events. Engaging artists across the world, we aim for powerful bridge building art of courageous generosity. In this series, guest experts will write a piece representing each letter of H.E.A.T. - week one will be healing, week two is education, week three is activism, and the last week of the month is theatre. Together these pieces will highlight the work that is being done across all aspects of The H.E.A.T. Collective in the hopes that we can ignite dialogue, spark further exploration, and encourage more people to get involved.
The inaugural series will begin this July with Adam Stevens: a theatre artist and drama therapist, Katherine Nigh: a theatre scholar, Joan Lipkin: an artist, activist, and member of Artists Rise Up NY, and Catherine Filloux: an award-winning playwright whose work centers on human rights and social justice.
This series will continue each month, so stay tuned for more!
