Local nonprofit visits FAMU PR students to help campaign for its grand opening

Indaba Theatre seeks to bring brand awareness through campaign by SJGC PR students 


TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (August 30, 2021) – Indaba Theatre, a nonprofit dedicated to helping children and adults heal through performing, visited Florida A&M University's public relations students on Monday to bring awareness to their nonprofit. 

Indaba Theatre, founded in 2005, is a theatre company committed to integrating "artistic vision into the everyday experience of being alive," helping people from middle school to adult. Donna Cotterell, the founder of Indaba Theatre, spoke with PR students in the School of Journalism and Graphic Communication (SJGC) about the nonprofit.

"We're excited about the opportunity to work with FAMU students," said Cotterell. "FAMU is part of the village. Collectively we can do so much more for our community."

The grand opening is scheduled for November 13 and will include musical performances, a fashion show, and much more. FAMU PR students in Dr. Hsuan Huang's class, Public Relations Campaigns, have the opportunity of helping the nonprofit organization increase its engagement throughout the semester. 

"I love the mission of the Indaba theatre," said De'ja Stokes, a senior public relations student from the class. "The idea of therapy through acting is very unique and not seen a lot. So I'm looking forward to seeing what's in store."
