Raised by immigrant parents, Mekha Varghese has been given the opportunity to connect with her culture in a unique way through the arts. Seeing what an important role this has played in her life, Mekha has set out to create a space where others can experience the same connection as well as education that she was able to receive. Shepherd’s Theatre offers communities a safe platform to express their own cultures and traditions. Incorporating a theater, community center, and a marketplace, Shepherd’s Theatre would be a cultural epicenter for all communities.
