CHRISTIAN MURPHY

Christian Murphy (he/him) is the Cofounder & CEO of Catharsis Productions. Catharsis Productions aims to change the world by creating and delivering innovative and interactive educational programs that challenge oppressive attitudes and transform behavior. Our programs use strategies like humor, interactive dialogue, and theater to tackle social justice issues, like sexual violence, sexual orientation and gender identity, and race in a non-conventional way.  Two of our presentations, Say What? (for college audiences) and NSFW (for corporate audiences) bid participants to recognize any unexamined privilege they may possess and how microaggressions unchallenged can further marginalize individuals from minority populations.  Our work is not to shame, but rather inspire positive, inclusive communities.
