As theatre arts educators and directors, we play a pivotal role in establishing an inclusive artistic environment that embraces diversity and is demonstrative of truth in storytelling. This webinar is designed to support participants in evaluating the discriminatory practices and exclusionary behaviors that divide our American stages. The hope is that through guided discussion and assessment, the participants will identify best practices that curate anti-racist theatre that is created for, is a reflection of and is inclusive to all cultures and communities.
