Vision for the Victoria Theater Art Center
We envision a vibrant neighborhood where the arts welcome, heal, transform and build power for the people of Frogtown/Rondo. The vision for the future of the Victoria Theater Arts Center is captured through authentic community engagement.
The summer of 2015 we asked our communities what the neighborhood needed through online surveys, community conversations, and "design parties". Take a look at the responses from Frogown and Rondo residents asked "what would you like to see at your Victoria Theater?"

We hosted two Design Parties to gather input from residents to inform the architectural plans for the space. Artist Organizers and Youth Fellows door-knocked, flyered, and phone banked to invite stake holders reflective of our neighborhood to attend this non-traditional design charrette.
