The Theater of Change:

Building the Capacity for Impact through Artistry, Law, and Activism


Artist Application

Broadway Advocacy Coalition​ and Columbia Law School​ continue their multi-year partnership with the second year of their January workshop entitled The Theater of Change: Building the Capacity for Impact through Artistry, Law, and Activism.

The course runs January 13th - 17th, 2020. Applications are due December 8th, 2019. 

An informational session will be held on Wednesday, December 4th from 6:30pm to 7:30pm. Participation is encouraged but not required for artists interested in the January course. To RSVP for the informational session, please email


The course will be focused on how arts, policy, and the voices of directly affected individuals can m​eld to create work that changes hearts and minds, then follows through with embedded policy goals​. The week will focus on issues of educational and criminal justice, and the community leaders present all have extensive experience both fighting and feeling the effects of these systems. Artists will work alongside community members to create work (music, playwriting, spoken word, dance, or a hybrid) that responds to these experiences, and will join forces with law students to strategize as to how and where these performances can happen to achieve sustainable impact. The goals of this week-long course are not only to facilitate an exchange of ideas across disciplines, but to ​form lasting partnerships that can continue to generate game-changing work into the future.
