The Roles We Play: Building A Better Model for Transgender Inclusivity and Accessibility in the Theatre Led by Jay Owen Eisenberg and Cat Hammond
How can we examine past and current models of trans-inclusive theater to build a more effective model for the future? What does it mean to be trans-conscious in your season programming, casting practices, and community engagement? In this discussion, theatre artists Jay Owen Eisenberg and Cat Hammond will facilitate conversation around active allyship and best practices that can more meaningfully engage transgender and gender nonconforming artists, arts administrators, and audience members. Participants will gain an understanding of the historical context of transgender presence in the performing arts, at a national and regional level, and will discuss Mixed Blood Theatre’s ongoing commitment to creating an artistic home for members of the transgender community.
