Tim Robbins on “The Importance of Bringing Art to Los Angeles Kids” (September 2015)
Tim Robbins – actor, director, producer, writer, musician and activist – joined friends and members of the Everychild Foundation for an evening salon at the home of Jacqueline and Andrew Caster, to discuss ‘The Importance of Bringing Arts to Los Angeles Kids.’
“The arts offer connection and hope, which work to keep young minds stimulated,” says Tim, the Artistic Director of The Actors’ Gang. “There is so much work that needs to be done. We will not let our children’s minds remain uninspired.”
The Actors’ Gang objectives are to provide theatre to under-served youth; to engage students in a professional theatre environment to help cultivate fundamental life skills; and to increase attendance and involvement in Performing Arts and to further advocate for arts in education. The organization also conducts classes and workshops with inmates in prisons and Juvenile Re-Entry programs.
