Art benefits children and adults personally, intellectually, and in social development. It can also build discipline, self-worth, and confidence.
To inspire, motivate, educate, and heal; by providing a safe space for artists to share, learn, and grow.
The No Limits Arts Theatre (NLAT) is a nonprofit organization focused to four causes; providing a venue for young artists, veterans and other individuals to showcase their artistic abilities, educating them about the work involved in achieving success in their craft, encouraging them to give back to their communities and helping those who have had a traumatic experience heal through art.
NLAT currently lease different venues to host our events, however, by 2022 it is our goal to purchase a space so that we can continue to educate the community on the importance of art in our schools, host workshops, mentor young artists, and begin Art Therapy programs like "Art Expressions for Veterans and First Responders".
No Limits Arts Theatre (NLAT) was founded in 2006 by Audrie Austin. Inspired by her son who is an artist, Audrie started NLAT with the goal of helping teens and young adults showcase their talents. She sought to create a solid foundation for sponsorship and build relationships within the community to host relevant events for youth.
NLAT began giving back to the community through volunteer work in 2007. Seeing a need to support our teachers, the “We Love Our Teachers” school supply drive was initiated in 2011. We began collecting school/art supplies and donating them to teachers in underserved schools. To date, in 2020, we have gifted over $9000 in supplies and 500 backpacks to teachers.
In 2016 NLAT began hosting the "Art Is" series of events. Art Is Performance the fourth (4th) weekend of March and Art Is Visual the fourth (4th) weekend of July. We also brought back an event we started in 2010 called Art Meets Art, where we showcase and exhibit both performance and visual art at one event, the fourth (4th) weekend in November.
