What happens when we combine our love for New York City with our appetite for design? Giving back to our local creative community, of course!
When we heard the Actors Theatre Workshop needed volunteers we thought, “it’s about time!”
On July 27th, designers Tristan and Gabby spent their Saturday helping renovate the Actors Theater Workshop (ATW) in Chelsea. Since many of our staff have theatre and set building backgrounds, spending the afternoon lending a hand was right up our alley.
The Actors Theatre Workshop is an award-winning non-profit theatre, community center, and educational institution that teaches innovative educational techniques and theatre principles to adults and children from all walks of life. As founder Thurman E. Scott sees it, creativity is a great equalizer because we all have the potential to create, which may lead to personal and professional development through creative training and community service.
Tristan and Gabby spent their afternoon painting and working on design layout plans for how to best use the space where they house workshops, acting classes, and community events. Here, members, volunteers, and participants get an opportunity to focus on dramatic works that examine the social issues of today.
ATW wants the community to utilize their skills, heart, and commitment to change people’s lives. We were very glad to be part of this afternoon and can’t wait to do it again. If you want to get involved with Actors Theater Workshop, check out their website!
