Each day, cities are presented with different challenges. If only the community can be brought together in order to work on these urban challenges, it would have been easier to overcome these challenges. This is something that the B. Someday Productions realized. They also realized that theatre, literature and myth can make it easier to bring the community together with the help of artists. Together, artists and the community can develop new strategies to work on these challenges. Read on to know more.
