This is intended as a resource for producers and directors to identify racially and culturally diverse creative teams for theater projects in the US. Please add your information to the bottom of the list
if you are a theater designer or technician who identifies as non-white or of color, inclusive of all ages, genders and abilities. This is NOT intended to be a list of directors and playwrights (though if
you'd like to create that list, by all means, please do!) Finally, please allow individuals 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 above guidelines will be deleted. Thank you! With questions or to edit your entry, email megansz@gmail.com.
NOTE: add your name by clicking in one of the "new entry" fields at the bottom. The list is re-alphabetized periodically.
