Writers and Cast, The Unexpected Guest

Well Arts Institute partners with area organizations to provide a public venue to advocate for their members and community. 

Through a series of workshops and rehearsals we guide participating writers through a collaborative process bringing their stories to the stage.

By partnering we strengthen awareness of the great work that is being done by our peers and our allies.  It allows us bring the voices of our neighbors, our friends, and our family members to the public through a process that is profoundly humane and healing.

Well Arts provides workshop facilitators, financial and logistical support.  We hire directors, actors, designers and technical crew to produce staged readings.

We work diligently to make sure the experience of the participants is a safe, yet challenging experience.

Partners Responsibilities 

Partners co-produce the project with Well Arts Institute. Together we create and implement a project plan. 

Partnering organizations recruit participants, help with publicity, provide volunteer support, and financial and logistical support.

Could your organization benefit from a Well Arts Institute workshop?
