Virtual Happy Hour for MN Performing Arts
June 10 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
On Monday, June 8, three hundred BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) theater-makers from around the country — including from Minnesota — launched a movement called We See You, White American Theater.
It includes a letter, a petition, and a website detailing the culture of white supremacy BIPOC theater-makers experience. In their words: “This is a response to the Civic Unrest in our country. We all recognize that while our country is full of protests against racial injustice, we must also protest it in our own field. We are demanding a more equitable and safe space for all BIPOC communities in our nation and inside of the American Theatre.”
Please read the letter here:
Join Rebecca Noon (Dir of Community Engagement, independent experimental theater-maker, and white cis-woman) in a conversation about this movement and the ways we in the field can act on this change with accountability, and become an industry that is safe and equitable for BIPOC people in all aspects of our work. While the focal point of current events has been the Twin Cities, we must work together as a statewide performing arts community including rural, remote, urban, and suburban communities.
