Our flagship project from September 2023!

Laro, Lingap, Laya: Workshops to Rewild the Theatre

A choose-your-own adventure workshop festival for performing artists, advocates, and educators who seek to sharpen their artistic tools for a more inclusive, playful, and collaborative arts practice.

Our Mission

We design and propagate creative spaces to equip art-makers with playful, regenerative, and participatory practices.

Our Projects

Through cultural work and community engagements like workshops, events, & productions, we seek to restore and empower the inner child in everyone.

We are Sandbox Residents!

Through the Sandbox Residency Program, Areté offers groups of academics, artists, professionals, and students the financial resources and physical space to interact, exchange ideas, and work on projects that marry their interests towards a common goal.

Areté supports collaborations that involve research and incorporate artistic processes and interventions, and also engage communities outside the academic and artistic worlds.
