CORE VALUES

These are the values that guide our work every year.

 

SOLIDARITY

 

We stand with each other in active struggle against all oppressions.  We are united in our difference.

 

UNDOING RACISM

 

All oppressions are connected.  We cannot talk about ending transphobia, homophobia, misogyny, and other oppressions without talking about ending oppression as a whole.  In particular, we are constantly working to put anti-racist practice at the center of our work.

 

DEVISED THEATER 

 

We believe in theater that originates not from the mind of one writer or one director, but from the efforts of an ensemble working collectively to devise work and solve problems.  We believe this not only makes for better theater, but makes for a better and more just creative practice.

 

YOUTH LEADERSHIP

 

We aim to make LOUD a youth-led, adult supported organization.  We aim to provide opportunities for young people to actualize their power, recieve job training, and guide the direction of the organization.
