The AGE Theatre Collective, based in Portland, amplifies the resiliency of BIPOC artists who identify as womxn or non-binary, who are active and supportive in theatre and performance. The Collective supports the artistic empowerment and professional development of our diverse communities. We do so through gatherings, workshops, info sessions, and an inter-generational mentorship program.
Bridging the Collective
Connecting Portland’s Emerging Artistic Community to National Theatre Leaders
“Sometimes we are blessed with being able to choose the time, and the arena, and the manner of our revolution, but more usually we must do battle where we are standing.” -Audre Lorde
The AGE Theatre Collective is excited to launch its Bridging the Collective Program for 2020. AGE will connect emerging BIPOC womxn and non-binary artists in Portland’s community with national BIPOC womxn and non-binary leaders. The goal of this program is to bridge a collective experience between emerging artists in our community and industry leaders that fosters collaboration and accessibility for BIPOC artists. We seek to provide an anti-racist, non-patriarchal, LGBTQ+ affirming space to authentically discuss the challenges presented to the BIPOC community, avenues for leadership, and ways to challenge the predominantly white patriarchal structures in the arts.
Space is limited to 10 pairings for the 2020 BTC cohort. Submissions for the program will be accepted now through Friday, Aug 7th.
The program format is that each pairing will have an introductory goal-setting session, followed by three 1-hr sessions.
Duration: September 15, 2020 – December 15, 2020
