We know. Everyone uses this word. So much so that it’s kind of lost its meaning. So here’s what community means to us:
The Groundwater Arts team, as individuals, are part of and accountable to many communities, including our local and national communities of arts-makers and designers, our neighborhoods, our extended familial networks, and our tribal nations and ancestral homes.
Our community work is relational, generative, and adaptive. It takes the form of movement-building projects (i.e. Green New Theatre), an ongoing commitment to frontline communities (3% of all income we generate goes directly to resource frontline organizations), and long term partnerships with artists and organizations that align with our values.
