In 2020, a group of Crowded Fire’s Resident Artists got together and asked: how can we leverage our power as individual artists to advocate for change at institutions?
Every member of the theatre ecosystem—actors, directors, designers, administrators, technicians, educators, audiences—has the capacity to make a difference.
As a result of Crowded Fire’s conversations, they created this photoset which they are calling an ‘Anti-Racist Toolkit’: built to empower artists, employees, educators, patrons, and all others who coexist within the theatre ecosystem as they navigate asking organizations to implement and strengthen their existing anti-racist policies and practices.
You can view the toolkit over on the CFT Facebook and Instagram, or download a PDF photoset.
As theaters across the country continue to incorporate anti-racism into their operations and organizational culture, it is crucial to remember that change doesn’t come from institutions: it comes from people.
