Gregory Perrin: Using Theater to Teach and Inspire Children —
Gregory Perrin loves the performing arts and understands the power of this platform. That is why the Pollyanna Theater Company commissioned Gregory to write “Liberty! Equality! and Fireworks!,” a children’s play that celebrates the Civil Rights Act of 1964. In his discussion with Ramona, Gregory explains how the arts influences activism and how it can also be used as a tool for educating and inspiring children. A dynamic leader, fundraiser and artist with 30 years of experience in nonprofits, higher education, community engagement and performing arts, Gregory is the Associate Vice President for Development and Alumni Relations at St. Edward’s University. Originally from San Antonio, Gregory lives in Austin, Texas. For more information about Gregory, visit https://www.linkedin.com/in/gsperrin/.
