Education and Engagement for All
Goodman Theatre is committed to using the art of theater for a better Chicago.
We subscribe to the idea of arts as education—using the tools of our profession to develop generations of citizens who understand the cultures and stories of diverse voices. In partnership with schools, our focus on professional development with teachers hones their abilities to activate student learning. With both adults and youth, our exploration of authentic voice leads to conversations about identity and commonalities in shared experience.
Using our art in service of a wider vision of social change is our guiding principle—and is an extension of Goodman Theatre’s vision and values as a cultural and community organization invested in quality, diversity and community.
—Willa J. Taylor, Walter Director of Education and Engagement
