Introducing Anti-Oppression Consultants:
Rage Sweater Theatre Productions + Guest Artist Tenyjah McKenna
Story Theatre is putting human dignity and care at the centre of our priorities and processes. Due to the systemic violence and barriers QT2BIPOC and Disabled artists face in our industry and society at large, Anti-Oppression consultation is a necessary part of the foundational work we are doing. Story Theatre is proud to announce our collaboration with Rage Sweater Theatre Productions who have been hired to work with us throughout the year in this capacity. Each artist at Rage Sweater has lived experience, artistic skills, and expertise they bring to their consultation work. Together, our goal is to identify and remove as many barriers as we can that limit marginalized groups from participating in this company. We are currently doing this work through critical analysis of policy through a BIPOC disability justice lens , by exploring creative mentorship opportunities for BIPOC youth, and by understanding our personal and industry-created biases in a Anti-Racism workshop.
