One of the largest arts organizations in Chattanooga, one of the longest running theatres in the Southeast, and one of the largest community theatres in the country, the Chattanooga Theatre Centre was founded in 1923 on the belief that the arts are a shared experience that delights, inspires, moves, and educates.
Now, 97 years later, our renewed focus centers on the conviction that that shared experience is for everyone, and we have the responsibility to be a leader in promoting diversity, equity, representation, access, and inclusion policies that benefit our organization, field, and community.
The Chattanooga Theatre Centre embraces the charge to serve people from all walks of life, socioeconomic status, racial and ethnic backgrounds, ages, sexual orientations, religions, and people with all forms of abilities. We are committed to building a culture that we all wish to be a part of, and we believe that when the wider community is truly represented in all that we do, the Chattanooga Theatre Centre will be stronger than ever as we enter our second century.
We acknowledge that addressing anti-racism, inclusion, and accessibility is a long-term, ongoing endeavor. We invite the community to participate and provide input as we move forward with our initiatives.
