UrbanArts and Shakespeare in Action were announced this week as being program partners for the Weston Common community cultural hub coming on John Street. UrbanArts develops the creative assets of artists and residents and has worked locally for years from its two locations on the other side of John Street and in Mount Dennis.
Shakespeare in Action is a non-profit professional theatre company dedicated to spreading knowledge of the characters, language, and the stories of Shakespeare’s works through a variety of one-off school workshops or longer term internships.
Both groups will bring a positive and youth oriented vibe to the Hub while promising benefits for the whole community.
The two organizations hope to be installed in their new location this fall.
Artists interested in the Live / Work studios may add their name to a waitlist here.
