Kickshaw Theatre

Connectivity is Kickshaw’s approach to ensuring that the work we do serves the Ann Arbor community. We connect with the particular communities for whom we believe the work will deeply resonate. We'll be diligent and creative as we build relationships and remove barriers to participation.

One of the strategies we use is Consensus Organizing for Theatre, which facilitates reciprocal relationships with community groups, businesses, and non-profit organizations for whom our work will resonate.  

Any individuals or organizations interested in a connectivity partnership can contact Connectivity Director Heidi Bennett by emailing curious at kickshawtheatre dot org.
