Early Bird Rates end on March 23.

We are launching the Inaugural Conference on Community Theater for Social Justice Action in partnership with the Civil Rights Heritage Center, IUSB Women's and Gender Studies, and ND Show Some Skin. The purpose of this conference is to create a space for deep strategizing among experts - community theater-makers, radically inclusive theater-makers in traditional theaters, community organizers, artist activists, and others.

We are currently recruiting volunteers to help us on April 28th, Saturday. Please join us in launching this exciting conference!
