Heritage Theater Ensemble is an organization of students committed to the continuation and evolution of Black theatre on Yale's campus and the New Haven community. We hope to be a contribution by bringing the rich voice of African American dramatists to fruition, while creating a unique atmosphere wherein students and supporters of Black theatre can network, learn, and come together in a comfortable environment.
Please describe the organization's purpose and/or mission. Statements of Purpose should only be a few sentences long, at maximum.
The purpose of Heritage Theater Ensemble shall be to foster the development of Black theater in the Yale-New Haven community: to provide a forum for the expression of Black (and other minority) talent in all aspects of the performing arts and to generate and promote a collective, artistic consciousness within the organization. Similarly, Heritage Theater Ensemble's promotion of artistic endeavors within New Haven shall be a means of developing and sustaining Black (minority) arts as a means of politicizing art-production within the local community.
