WoC Collective: Calling Theatre Artists of Color Under 30!

Calling theatre artists of color under 30 of all gender identities and all theatrical disciplines! AGE’s Women of Color in PDX Theatre Collective presents a gathering to serve all young artists of color entering Portland’s professional theatre scene.

Join us for a discussion with veteran artists: Jennifer Lanier and Cristi Miles, regarding the challenges and rewards we all face as theatrical artists. The event and discussion are led exclusively by women of color and will prioritize the nuanced experiences of the most underrepresented individuals in our community.

AGE has pledged to acknowledge Native lands.  “Acknowledgment is a simple, powerful way of showing respect and a step toward correcting the stories and practices that erase Indigenous people’s history and culture and toward inviting and honoring the truth”. Equity demands truth.
