MetLife Foundation Supports Future Artists and Change-makers
August 21st 2012
Throughout history, there is a long tradition of theater with a social mission – from ancient Greek tragedies, to medieval morality plays to the United Farm Workers’ Teatro Campesino, drama has been used to explore ethics and question the individual’s role in society. Can the theater still be relevant in today’s hyper-connected, e-culture? Can today’s youth reclaim this ancient form of art and communication to tell their stories? And is anyone listening?
Thanks to the support from the MetLife Foundation, World Savvy youth in New York City are answering these questions with their original theater production, a case study in the interconnectedness of how sustainable communities are developed. Read more on how World Savvy youth are doing it and the role the MetLife Foundation played.
