Art Inspiring Change

Since 2004, The Justice Theater Project has produced professional shows combined with discussion, outreach and advocacy.

We receive State Arts Resources support from the North Carolina Arts Council, a division of the N.C Department of Cultural Resources and supports exemplary arts organizations that set standards of excellence for the state that produce high quality arts programs, provide educational and outreach opportunities for children and adults, and have strong leadership and management.

Operating support each year is provided by the City of Raleigh based on recommendation of the Raleigh Arts Commission.

Project support is provided by The United Arts Council of Raleigh and Wake County.

Each summer we provide youth summer theater camps in three locations, working with Passage Home at The Safety Club, students in North Raleigh at The Catholic Community of St. Francis of Assisi, and in Durham at the Emily K Center. All camps provide an extraordinary amount of scholarships for the students, and a fair wage for the professional and support staff.

We encourage you to become a season member, volunteer to build a set, join a committee, audition for a show, and become a part of the JTP family.

Internships for college students are available each semester.
