At Mirror Image Arts, we’ve made it our mission to equip the youth in our communities with the tools and the confidence they need to become Upstanders and make a positive difference in their schools. We use theatre to get that conversation started. Participants explore the complex social dynamics of diversity awareness and inclusion, build empathy, develop interpersonal skills, and learn problem solving techniques that they can use in their daily lives. By experiencing this program, they will have a better chance for overall success. Mirror Image Arts would not be able to operate without the generous support of our community. We currently receive the vast majority of our operating budget from private donations. For the 2018 Colfax Marathon, we encourage all of our race participants to reach out to their friends, families, and colleagues to ask for their support of the Mirror Image Arts running team with a tax-deductible donation.
