Become an Upstander for your community by joining the Mirror Image Arts Youth Advisory Team.

We are looking for youth between the ages of 11-18 who are interested in theatre and/or social action. Mirror Image Arts uses theatre as a language to inspire dialogue, encourage awareness and promote action in order to build a strong, compassionate and empowered community. Together we will devise a Social Justice theatre piece that reflects youth – their voice, passions and the change they want to be to an audience of community leaders. In addition, through involvement in the the Youth Advisory Team, youth will lend their experiences, opinions, and creative problem solving skills to help shape how our organization serves them and their peers through our current bullying prevention program, “Your Voice Matters”. The Mirror Image Arts Youth Advisory Team will meet monthly starting in March. As we develop our performance piece we will meet more frequently to rehearse in May based on team members schedules.

If you or someone you know is interested in this leadership opportunity, please contact Meghann Henry at m.henry@mirrorimagearts.org.

We want to extend a heart felt “Thank You” for all of our supporters who attended our Holiday Variety Show. Because of their generosity, we were able to raise $1,700. This is a wonderful step towards our fundraising goal of $25,000 over the next six months. Reaching this goal will provide Mirror Image Arts with a sustainable future, so that we can continue to change and save lives.

Please help us to continue this momentum by becoming a Mirror Image Arts’ Repeat Defender and by telling your friends, family, and colleagues about Mirror Image Arts, so they too can have the opportunity to join us as we empower Denver youth and build a stronger more empathic community.

You are our heroes. And we thank you. Happy Holiday!

The Mirror Image Arts’ “I Got Your Back!” Program Showcase and Fundraiser was a wonderful success. Our great thanks to all of the wonderful donors and volunteers that made the evening possible. After such a success, we are even more motivated to bring our programming to the community! To keep this amazing work available to our youth, we need your help. If you were unable to attend the event, it’s not too late to show your support.

The true cost to Mirror Image Arts for a single workshop is $1500. Because of generous contributions from people like you, we are able to bring our program to schools for only $300 which ensures youth across the socioeconomic spectrum equal access to our important message. The best way you can help us is by becoming a Mirror Image Arts “Repeat Defender” and signing up to make a set donation of an amount of your choosing each month via PayPal on our Ways to Give page. Or, consider making a one-time donation.

We believe in what we are doing. We’re asking you to stand with us. Thank you for your support.

Mirror Image Arts recently launched its Two-day program at Merrill Middle School. While all programs have stumbles, the challenges were welcomed and met. The result?

A great success. 

“The Mirror Image Arts “Your Voice Matters” program was an engaging and interactive workshop for our students that not only challenged them to think critically about bullying but also empowered them with the tools to make changes in our school community.  Mirror Image provided an extremely valuable social and emotional learning opportunity for our students and we look forward to working with them again very soon,”

Merrill Middle School Community Engagement Specialist, David Edmonds.

Thanks to the students, teachers and staff at Merrill Middle School!

Last week we were so happy to see so many supportive and creative people at our open house held at Curious Theatre in Denver. Attendees ate and learned about Mirror Image Arts before the presentation, and were treated with a simulated workshop. Guided by Patrick Elkins-Zeglarski the audience was first introduced to a brave young man who shared his incredibly insightful, heartbreaking and inspiring story of being bullied. The story, like so many seeping into our communities today, framed the urgency and importance of workshops like Mirror Image Art’s, “Your Voice Matters.”

The facilitator of the workshop began the simulation and Patrick interjected, explaining the structure and reasoning behind the processes. A seemingly simple play that occurs over several days in a middle school setting allows for incredible conversation and engagement. The actors lit the stage with honesty, sparking strong responses from the attendees.

The afternoon was closed with a panel discussion that included actors, directors, board members and Ms. Brittnee Merritt a Denver Public Schools Community Engagement Specialist with FACE (Family and Community Engagement).

We couldn’t be more pleased with the unveiling of our flagship workshop and the genuine support we received. Thank you.

Here we go!
