Mission

Founded in 1974, Creative Arts Team (CAT) uses theatre and interactive drama as a catalyst to actively address social and academic issues, foster creativity, and critically engage with the world.
 
Using improvisation, drama games, scene building, and the facilitation of transparent conversations to engage participants as they recognize their power to problem-solve and try new strategies in single day, weeklong, semester-long, and yearlong residencies, CAT's programming annually reaches over 10,000 unique participants.
 
CAT's programs build community and address healthy relationships and violence prevention, life and leadership skills, arts learning, and college/job readiness, while bolstering academic and social literacy. CAT engages students from pre-K through college, parents, educators, and professionals in ways that challenge and empower participants to interrogate barriers built around those marginalized due to race, culture, immigration status, disability, gender, and/or sexual identity.
