House Lights Up: Theatre for Social Change

On display in Carrier Library, November 2018. Selected by Kerry Scannell.

His claim reflects the notion that theatre as a fabricated space serves as a place for people to practice change-making, and that theatre has the unique ability to bring awareness to social issues in a hugely community-focused medium.
