awareness through performance
...changing the world one performance at a time.
We are Awareness through Performance. On our campus, we are not only students, but also change agents and leaders. We are committed. We are passionate. We are both learners and teachers. We are diverse in our identities and experiences and most importantly, we are willing to share our stories.
The mission of Awareness through Performanceis to promote greater consciousness around social justice, diversity, and climate issues on the UW-L campus and beyond. Using the stage as our forum, we creatively challenge systems of privilege and oppression and strive to plant seeds of social responsibility, inspire critical thought, and spark a campus-wide conversation.
