The Theatre Lab partners with many organizations in the D.C. area as part of its educational and outreach programming. These partnerships strengthen and support The Theatre Lab’s mission, and are one of the many ways The Theatre Lab gives back to the community.
The Woolly Core Connectivity Partners are long-term mutually beneficial relationships with organizations who share the same values around inclusion, anti-racism, social justice, and the power of art. These core partnerships will allow both parties to accomplish together what neither could do alone, resulting in opportunities for cross-sector learning and participation in Washington DC’s arts, cultural, and civic life. This partnership brings together Woolly Mammoth, N-Street Village, and Theatre Lab as a powerful trio. Together, we will be exploring authentic relationship building through shared arts and cultural experiences. N-Street Village empowers homeless and low-income women in Washington, D.C. to claim their highest quality of life. Watch more.
