The Avenue Blackbox Theatre is a place I lend my light to for no other reason than that it cultivates creativity, community, self empowerment and youth engagement. There is no other creative space that empowers an artist to give of them [full] selves, to engage in self reflection & growth in finding and honing ones creative voice.
It is a place of harvest. The seeds we plant today are well watered here. I cant think of no other worthy place!!
