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. This is NOT intended to be a list of directors and playwrights (though links to such lists can be found in the second
sheet below, "Other Lists and Links"). 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. New sheets added to the document will also be deleted (if you need to create a new sheet, please do so in a separate document).
Thank you!
TO ADD YOUR NAME: Click in one of the "new entry" fields at the bottom. Only add your name, not the name of other artists. The list is re-alphabetized periodically.
TO EDIT YOUR ENTRY: Create a new entry in one of the "new entry" fields at the bottom and then email megansz@gmail.com to have the new entry swapped for the old one.
QUESTIONS? Email megansz@gmail.com.
