Why Free Art for All?
To the best of my beliefs, we are all creators. That innate creativity that we all possess expresses itself differently from person to person and is only strengthened and magnified when shared directly with others. Oracle is a place where I feel that truly exists for me as a (relatively) young artist. I respect it’s all inclusion. I respect its focus on art that speaks to our community. I respect this model because, at bottom, it brings all demographics together in our current world state of separation. We may not agree on all things, like all the art we see, or agree with all the choices made. But nevertheless, you are ALWAYS welcome to Public Access Theatre.
