We need more than just the history books to carry our stories, we need bodies, images, and human expression to capture the things pure information cannot.
At LIT we believe that future generations should not only look to the internet for their knowledge and wisdom of the world.
Artists are the carriers of story, culture, and tradition.
In ancient times until the industrial age, artists often had a relationship with a single patron who funded all of their work and made it possible for them to focus exclusively on their art.
Today, it is not uncommon for professional artists to work for free, many making the choice between creating their next project or paying their rent. The performing arts can often be judged by their measure of “economic” return and as time moves forward, it becomes easier for younger generations to forget how important the arts are to a free and educated society.
At LIT, art is a true career, one that is necessary to the cultural and social fabric of our time.
To support LIT is to support not only the art we generate and the international exchanges we cultivate but it is to become a part of a great tradition. It is to preserve the act of storytelling for the future while offering the opportunity for youth and general audiences to raise awareness of the international culture. Our company hopes to help our communities thrive by promoting diversity and giving a voice to the underrepresented and disadvantaged in our city.
