This is intended to be a resource for producers, directors, or playwrights to identify racially, ethnically or culturally diverse creative teams for theatre projects in the U.S. Please add your information to the bottom of the list if you are a dramaturg who identifies as non-white or of color, inclusive of all ages, genders, and abilities. This is not intended to be a list of fields other than dramaturgy, so if you do not identify as a dramaturg, please do not add your name to this list. However, feel free to create a similar list for other fields in the theatre. Also, please allow others to opt-in by adding themselves, rather than being added by others. In order to keep the list useful, incomplete entries or entries that do not follow the guidelines stated in this message will be deleted. Thank you! If you have questions, please email martinekeigreen@gmail.com. NOTE: you may add your name by clicking on one of the "new entry" fields at the bottom. This list will be re-alphabetized periodically.
