Dramatic Changes Artist Society

We hire artists to help community groups make musicals, films, video games, and other art about local issues. We run workshops, host events, and put together projects based on the needs that we see in our community.

Our mandate is to create and present story-based art such as films, musicals, websites, songs, and games to raise awareness of social justice issues, amplify marginalised voices by supporting collaborations between community members and professional artists, support diversity in the arts industry, and provide arts mentorship to our communities.

During the summers we host most of our events in parks, to help activate local spaces and make them more welcoming for our community. Currently, we regularly host improv acting workshops/playdates, all ages dance parties, and discussions about wellness and mental health. We are planning to start a meditation drumming group also, and organising film screenings and live concerts.
