Oregon Shakes Launches Equity and Inclusion Training Program

Oregon Shakespeare Festival (OSF) has launched artEquity, a facilitator training initiative on inclusion and equity issues for theatre companies nationwide. The program, which will have its first retreats in September and October, is supported by a $145,000 grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. It will bring together a group of 25–35 theatre professionals annually to participate in analysis-building workshops and skills-based sessions and will address issues of ally-building, identity and privilege, and share the best methods of facilitating organizational change for theatre groups.
