MISSION STATEMENT

GREAT LEAP, Inc., is a Los Angeles-based, multicultural arts organization which uses art as both performance and creative practice to deepen relations among people of diverse cultures and faiths and to transform how we live on the earth. Founded in 1978 by Artistic Director Nobuko Miyamoto, Great Leap is rooted in the Asian American community and promotes cross-cultural exchange with local and nationwide audiences and communities.

Great Leap is committed to creating a safe, secure, respectful, diverse and inclusive environment for our staff, artists, volunteers and participants. We actively pursue social justice, anti-racism and freedom from discrimination and harassment in practice as well as belief. All Board, staff, artists, volunteers and participants are strongly encouraged to speak up if they witness or experience harassing or discriminatory behavior, whether in the workplace, at workshops or community events.
