2nd Act is a collective of artists in recovery which uses theatre, film, and drama therapy to address the impact of substance use. Together we empower diverse and inclusive communities to promote understanding in the face of stigma.
We believe in a world where all stories are honored, recovery is celebrated, and everyone gets a second act.
We seek out marginalized and oppressed voices to collaborate, celebrate, amplify, and create work with.
We believe it is our responsibility to use storytelling as a powerful tool for positive action and change in our communities.
We believe in the transformational nature of creativity and storytelling and its innate ability to provide a pathway for change for individuals and communities.
We work in partnership with community-based organizations and the voices of community members is the heart of our work.
We create honest and authentic narratives that encourage growth, connection and new understandings across diverse communities.
We believe healing happens through storytelling created with empathy, joy, laughter, and love.
