Retreats are our time to connect, play, deepen our skills, work with special guests, and hone our performance piece.

The PAC is collaborating on a multi-disciplinary exploration of empathy and connection that weaves together their passions and interests – Shakespeare, Original Work, Music, and Movement. They are working towards a public performance in the spring.

No prior PAC involvement necessary – teens are welcome to join at any time in the process.

The Penguin Artistic Cohort advances individual and collective goals for artistic development, activism and advocacy, and social connection and cohesion. PAC members are on the front lines engaging in discussion and action to move Penguin towards being a more anti-racist organization. PAC members receive professional arts and leadership education, propose plays and workshop content, produce community events, and are ambassadors and bridge-builders in our community.
