Wow! It's mid-month already. Time sure does fly. Before we get too far into the new year, let's have a quick review of 2018.
Over the past year, Crossroads Panorama engaged neighborhoods, families, and audiences with a major stage production and a host of entertaining events. We had a positive presence in the community and look forward to even greater in 2019. Crossroads Panorama brings healing to communities through drama therapy and related forms of expression.
Thank you for supporting the work of our mission. Together, we can make our community healthier and happier.
Here's what 2018 looked like:
Meet You at the Crossroads -- a stage production of the passon of Christ.
Poetry Slam -- Youth Voice Open Mic; the artistry of spoken word
Crossroads annual fund raiser and open house
Movie night -- showing and discussion of Black Panther. A safe event for kids to gather and take in entertainment for the whole family.
Plans are to publish regular communications in 2019 to keep you informed about our work and impact. Watch for us!
Crossroads Panorama originated from a faith-based theater group formed in 1977 called Actors for Christ. A small group of concerned adults with a heart for people saw communities hurting and also saw a need for young Christians to have a positive social outlet. These individuals were recruited to become involved in theater. The use of dramatic arts in their lives brought significant growth as well as healing to some participants.
By1994, Actors for Christ broadened its scope and evolved into Crossroads Panorama, a 501c3 nonprofit community-based youth arts program whose mission is to equip youths with positive life-long learning experiences that will empower purpose, self-worth, and change. Crossroads Panorama helps young people ages 9-26 break free of challenging behaviors that impede their success in school and in the community.
