The mission of ArtsWest is to produce artistic events so compelling that they require conversation, improve the imagination, and promote cultural vibrancy as a core value for the communities of Seattle.
What does that mean exactly? It means that we are committed to bringing plays, musicals and art to our audiences that speak to who we are and that are not afraid to explore human emotion. Our work is not always easy or safe. We are willing and able to take on work that reaches deeper than the surface, that may not be tied up in a fancy bow, but that will force you to engage, to react, and we hope to improve the spirit of your most creative self – your imagination. We also do not seek to be edgy for the sake of shock value. There is no need to go there because to truly compel conversation one needs only to be willing to open the dialogue, to give you the tools and fodder, to open your minds and instill in you the need to do that which is most human – to discuss and share.
– Laura Lee, ArtsWest Managing Director
