Mission + Culture
Creating Communities Through Art
The mission of the Kelly Strayhorn Theater is to serve as a catalyst for creative expression that brings diverse communities together. Focusing on the performing and media arts of our time, KST takes a multidisciplinary and inclusive approach to presenting contemporary performing arts. KST programs examine the questions that define and inspire us as individuals and communities.
Our mission supports a vision in three parts.
A LEADING PRESENTER
of innovative works in dance, theater, music and live art;
A COMMUNITY RESOURCE
for youth education, emerging artist support and community partnership;
A NEIGHBORHOOD DESTINATION
accelerating the transformation of East Liberty as a destination for cultural entertainment and business opportunity.
