Embedding Antiracism In Theatre Organizations Fieldwide

Join TYA/USA, in partnership with Arts in Color, in a national conversation on addressing the racism and oppression that impacts the entire TYA industry in personal, professional, and systemic ways.

How do we reimagine the structures and practices of our theatre institutions in bold new ways? This session will explore the ways in which theatre organizations can make tangible structural changes to embed antiracism across the organization’s culture and practices. Inspired by the growing grassroots Antiracism movement across the regional theatre and unpacking the We See You WAT demands document as a foundation, the session will explore coalition-building among arts leaders towards a more equitable and antiracist theatre ecosystem.

Over the course of a 11-session webinar series we will explore a variety of issues and perspectives regarding the ways artists and organizations can begin to (or further) embed antiracist practice in Theatre for Young Audiences.

In addition to the 11 webinars, participants will be provided with reading materials, resources, follow up questions to deepen their learning, and a Slack Channel for further dialogue. Join colleagues across the country in actively engaging with ways to dismantle racism and white supremacy in the TYA field, and work toward making (or sustaining) meaningful change in creating a truly equitable landscape for our artists, organizations, and our young audiences.
