A CALL TO CONSCIENCE

                                        INTERACTIVE THEATER FOR SOCIAL CHANGE  

A Call to Conscience (c2c) is a nonprofit 501(c)3 theater collective that uses a multimedia format to dramatize historical themes dealing with the struggles of the oppressed. Using speeches, essays, and adaptations we highlight transformative events that evoked change and the various architects and leaders that helped to create them.


“Our mission is to stir the conscience of our community and facilitate

social change.”

Education

c2c offers workshops for adults, as well and middle and high school students, where the participants become familiar with iconic events and contributors in the fields of history, literature, art, music, and politics that emphasize social change.  The facilitators are trained in the dramatic arts. Single presentations can be adapted to the clients’ requests and are designed to meet the Common Core Standards of English and Language Arts set by the Missouri Department of Education.
