We seek to broaden the scope of San Diego's cultural environment by offering professional, socially-conscious theatre that provides a voice for diverse and underrepresented communities, aesthetics, and issues on stage; generates participation and dialogue between local communities; and creates paid employment for local theatre artists. Our commitment to paying artists union-level wages reflects our strong belief that professional, resident artists will make San Diego a nationally-competitive destination arts scene, thus improving the quality of life for all people of San Diego County. Mo`olelo serves the diverse general public, from youth to seniors, with particular focus toward providing a forum for those who are typically underserved in mainstream American theatre.

As associate director of a three-school collaboration in a very diverse urbam community, I have worked with Mo'olelo for two years. Our goal has been to raise student achievement, improve motivation and expose students to the world of drama by linking theater-based programs to the schools' standards based curriculum. Mo'olelo has con- sistently provided excellent, well-managed programs that are sensitive to the needs of urban youths. The teaching artists understand how to respond to students from diverse language and ethnic groups and how to use these varied backgrounds to create meaningful learning experiences. Mo'olelo is resourceful and aggressive in seeking funding for schools in areas of high poverty. Leadership is professional, energetic and totally committed to helping urban youth overcome the adverse effects of poverty through arts experiences.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

likely transform the look of arts education in San Diego. Mo'olelo "gets it" and understands how to 1. seamlessly blend theater arts expereinces into the social studies & English curriculum, K through grade 12 2. create programs that appeal to urban kids.
