Community Matters Non-Profit Partner Application

Each year, Playback Memphis chooses six non-profit organizations from a pool of applicants to receive a Playback experience (performance or workshop) at a deeply discounted price. Those selected will also attend a Memphis Matters performance where the Community Matters partner’s work will be highlighted.

Playback is looking for organizations whose work with people has a human imperative for new voices to be heard and who could benefit from a tailored Playback experience. We recognize the deep impact of personal and historical collective trauma on individuals and communities. This is why we seek to share the practice of Playback theater as a resource with those who desire to engage healing, inspire hope, and build life affirming culture rooted in compassion and justice.

Workshops and performances offer rich experiential learning journeys that integrate:
● meaningful content supported by neuroscience,
● enlivening engagement,
● purposeful skill development, and
● rich opportunities for applied practice.

Concepts to explore include: self- compassion, navigating conflict, happiness and joy, mindful listening, and perspective taking.Themes can be custom tailored as well.

In this partnership, we offer a performance that will be specifically themed for the partner, as well as six complimentary tickets for the partner organization to experience Memphis Matters. We also love highlighting and promoting the good work of our Community Matters partners to our Memphis Matters audiences through performance, social media and word of mouth. We seek to collaborate with partners to foster dialogue, awareness and unity of mission. Unsure if the Playback experience is right for your group? Feel free to reach out to us with questions before completing the application. Contact Ann Wallace, Program Manager at [email protected]/ 901-264-0841.
