Talking Back Episode 4 now streaming!

Talking Back | Episode 4 | BIPOC Fatigue

Four Black, Indigenous, and people of color (BIPOC) artists and administrators gather for a deeply honest discussion of the emotional and personal costs involved in working with and in predominantly white theatres. In a workplace of daily humiliations and microaggressions, what is it like to be asked by white leadership to not only represent the “diversity” of their organization, but to help them become better people? What are the rewards and successful strategies for support and survival? Panelists include Gabriel Barrera (Founder, ScenicG), Seena Hodges (President & CEO, The Woke Coach), Mica Cole (Producer), Leslie Ishii (Artistic Director, Perseverance Theatre), and facilitated by artEquity Founder Carmen Morgan.

Talking Back is a six-part web series that reveals the growing movement for justice in the theatre field. Through candid conversations with founding artistic directors, newly appointed leaders, and activists who have operated at all levels of leadership in arts organizations across the US, Talking Back explores what it takes to transform not just an institution, but an entire industry.

Launched in 2015 as a national initiative, artEquity provides tools, resources, and training at the intersection of art and activism.
