OUR MISSION


Open Arts Alliance, is a 501c3 non-profit social service organization that uses the performing arts to bridge the gap between the youngest and eldest members of our community. Through our free educational programs for children and senior citizens, OAA is dedicated to bringing literacy and art to an underserved community.

Open Arts Alliance focuses on working with students who are in high-risk situations as well as senior citizens who have mobility issues, cognitive deficits and dementia. Our educational programs use theatre to speak to students of all ages about personal wellness, bullying and making positive life choices.
