|artEquity is thrilled to announce that Penumbra Theatre in St. Paul, MN, celebrating its historic 40th year, will be our site site for the 2016 artEquity facilitator training.
Located in the rich theatre ecology of the Twin Cities, Penumbra’s vision and values align with artEquity's mandate to support the intersection of art and activism. Penumbra, the nation’s largest African American theatre, as artEquity’s host and program partner, will provide a distinct perspective on the role of theatre for social change.
At a time when equity-based conversations are being led by predominantly white organizations, it becomes even more vital that conversations around inclusion and equity be held in spaces built for, and by, communities of color. Penumbra’s 40–year history and important leadership in this area will bring important context to these timely conversations.
We are looking forward to hosting two intensive weekends at Penumbra on September 8-11 and October 27-30 with another diverse group of 25-30 theatre practitioners from across the nation.
