Mosaic Theater Company of Washington DC
A Peacebuilding Connections Partnership
Independent, intercultural, entertaining, and uncensored, Mosaic Theater Company is committed to making transformational, socially-relevant art, to producing plays by authors on the front lines of conflict zones, and to building a fusion community to address some of the most pressing issues of our times. Dedicated to making our theater a model of diversity and inclusion at every strata, on stage and off, Mosaic invests in the new as we keep abreast of our changing and challenging times to ensure that our theater is a responsive gathering space, all the while nurturing and producing art of the highest order. We complement our productions with comprehensive engagement through free pre- and post-show programming, an annual intercultural festival, like our “Voices From a Changing Middle East” series, and educational initiatives, including our touring “Mosaic on the Move.”
Peacebuilding Connections and Bob Schlehuber were an integral part of the launch of the Mosaic Theater in 2016. While at Mosaic Theater Peacebuilding Connections was promoted to Associate Producer for Public Programming, overseeing Mosaic’s Public Programming Committee. The Committee consisted of 15 staff, board members, and community volunteers. Over a 27 month period, the committee under the oversight of Peacebuilding Connections produced over 300 post-show discussions featuring a broad and diverse range of experts, artists, and 1,000s of audience members. In addition to post-show discussions Peacebuilding Connections produced opening night musical performances that complemented Mosaic’s stage productions and supported front of house operations for the company.
