Culture Project believes theater is an effective agent of social change and is dedicated to fostering the creative growth of artists. Sedgwick and Redgrave performed in the New York production of The Exonerated which focused attention on six exonerates, wrongfully imprisoned, some for decades, and then released without recognition of wrongdoing or compensation. Incidentally, Culture Project was first propelled into national prominence by the acclaimed production of The Exonerated.
