Anti-Racist Theatre

Wednesday, May 19, 2021
2:00pm - 5:00pm EST

Location: Zoom
Intended Audience: All who believe the way forward for theatre is anti-racist and anti-oppressive are welcome.
Participation Level: High - This training is highly interactive; attendees will participate in group discussion & exercises.

Nicole Brewer, creator of Conscientious Theatre Training and originator of the Anti-Racist Theatre (A.R.T.) movement, is teaching her unique approach which blends anti-racist theory, social justice, collectivism, healing justice, and theatre exercises for an embodied understanding of racism and our agency to become anti-racist. 

In this course, Nicole offers participants tools to craft their own unique anti-racist theatre ethos and delve into the three core principles of anti-racist theatre: harm reduction, harm prevention, and relationship repair. Participants will be guided through self-reflection exercises designed to strengthen their analysis of their position, power, privilege and begin to uproot their racist practices, policies, and protocols. 

All who believe the way forward for theatre is anti-racist and anti-oppressive are welcome. We all have a role to play. The future of art will be nourished by you. Join us in doing the work to make sure theatre is a liberated place for all. 

Nicole Brewer is an actor, director, and educator who was compelled to speak out against the harmful and unnecessary practice of cultural erasure in traditional theatre programs. Currently, Nicole travels both domestically and internationally partnering with individuals and organizations to help them adopt an anti-racist theatre ethos. She has shared her work on various panels and has presented at TCG conferences, National Black Theater Festival, and Goldsmiths University in the UK. She has given anti-racist theatre workshops at Yale, NYU, University of Cambridge, National Theater Institute, and more. Nicole is a proud member of the 2018 artEquity cohort. She resides in Washington DC with her husband and three heartbeats (children).
