Theatre For Change is a South Texas 501c3 organization made up of dramatic media artists who are committed to linking the stories inherent within theatre, film, and new media to the needs and messages of nonprofit organizations.
Founded by Shannon Ivey and Stephen Ivey, TFC aims to weld the weakest links in the community by producing, and creating works of theatre, film, and new media that encourage awareness, compassion, and a call to action.
Theatre For Change was founded on January 1, 2013 as a coalition of professional film, theater, and new media artists who were passionate about turning humanitarian statistics into narratives. In three years, TFC has secured four grants, produced four events - tackling adoption, childhood cancer, the foster system, and immigration – produced a short film, and have employed over 150 artists from the Austin, San Antonio, and LA markets.
