“Ripple Effect” as it applies to Ripple Effect Artists means creating a movement by simply touching one person, who will touch another, who will touch another until many of the world’s inhabitants have been touched by the importance of the advocacy work that we do at REA. With our theater arts productions that revolve around social issues, we touch more than one person at a time. Because theater is audience driven, we end up touching many with our thought provoking productions and our advocacy programs. Therefore using theater as an art form to generate action as an advocacy forum.
