Our Core Values.
A Collective Artists is a New York City based ensemble dedicated to the enlightening power of accessible and reflective theater. We are determined to make representative art because we believe theater unites, builds empathy and understanding. We are committed to creating a collaborative home where artists can explore and grow. These values define us and our work.
To the artist – by providing a safe home for those who love the joy of collaboration and being part of an ensemble. It is through this environment that art and creativity thrives. To the audience – by creating theater that is accessible, by seeing and being seen in the theatrical experience. We are focused on breaking down barriers that stand between performers and audience members.
A Collective Artists was formed in early 2019 when a group of Atlantic Acting School Evening Conservatory alumni and other New York City artists gathered together to address major issues in theater today. Our two major goals are to correct were there is a lack of access for audiences and proper representation for actors.
We are directors, designers, actors, and playwrights. As a Collective, we are diverse in so many ways, and that is what makes us better. Watch us work. We believe in our mission, and we believe in the enlightening power of theater that is reflective.
