About trumbullplex

Mission statement circa 1993: We have formed the Trumbullplex; also know as the Wayne Association for Collective Housing, to create a space where we control our own lives. We are a not-for-profit project dedicated to self-sufficiency in all facets of our lives; in our housing, our work, and our energy. We support other projects that share our goals of dismantling racism, sexism, homophobia, and the oppression of poor people through activities in our theater and housing collective. We want to create a positive environment for revolutionary change in which economic and social relationships are based on mutual aid and the absence of hierarchy. Through consensus decision making and full participation in carrying out our decisions, we create the circumstances and expectations for collective empowerment. Ultimately, we strive to realize these goals through respect and constructive communication among ourselves. Theater Collective Mission Statement We partner with the Trumbullplex residents, neighbors, artists, people of conscience, and any potential allies to build a safe space for sharing art and ideas free from oppression.
