PTAFF seeks to give a platform to artists who seek to use their voice in film, theatre, spoken word, painting, sculptor, and photography to bring to light such issues as, poverty, gender inequality, homelessness, hunger, physical and psychological abuse, racism,  sex trafficking, war and grief.   

The festival is an intersection between art and social justice giving independent artists a place to create, thrive and bring to market work they are passionate about without fear it will never be seen. Artists are allowed to take risk, tell their stories as they work to change the world.

We are dedicated to the discovery and presentation of emerging artists, giving them an opportunity to let their voices be heard around the world.  Injustice in many forms is a reality affecting our global community, as artists we have a responsibility to stand up against injustice.  Many artists take action to turn these injustices around through their work.  We seek to support and aide these artist as they help to transform, save and change the lives of those who suffer, creating a sense of hope to fuel our struggle.

In 2017 our festival focus  causes will explore injustice within our criminal justice system specifically "Mass Incarceration" and the demise of "Public Education" as it relates to underserved communities here at home and abroad.
