From the inherent need in each of us to create and play, Play Inc. Arts strives to provide a new and different arts outlet for the communities of Cambridge, Isanti, and the surrounding area. We encourage personal growth of both visual artists and performing artists by offering them the opportunity to challenge their abilities and their mind. Play Inc. Arts provides the audience a chance to expand their arts awareness through exceptional programs. Play Inc. Arts provides opportunities for students interested in developing further and adults interested in becoming students once again.
Our theater programs serve over 100 children and 60 adult performers annually. The community viewing audience for our performances is 4,500. Our focus is to continue to expand our current programing by teaching theatrical arts and leadership skills, while reaching as many community members as possible. To achieve this, we have offered, and will continue to offer, a variety of classes, camps and other educational opportunities in performing. As we grow in stature as an organization, we strive now to expand our visual arts programs by giving artists the chance to exhibit, compete and share skills by providing juried shows, clinics, workshops and studio time. As the recipient of the largest gifted Elof Wedin art collection, we will continue to share his work to the community through our gallery and by loan to community businesses.
We are committed to an environment that fosters inclusion and honesty, and reflects our community. We respect varied backgrounds and work and life experiences. We pursue programs that reflect the art of all those represented and underrepresented in our community while also providing an outlet for those same artists.
