An Activist, Spoken-word Poet, Museum Educator, and a Couple Profs Walk into a Theatre: Community Collaborations in Theatre and Film


Discussant:

The arts provide a platform for seeing things in ways other than they are normally seen (Eisner, 2002, p. 83). Join our team to explore our seemingly-unlikely collaborative partnership and a sampling of comedic scripts from our live sketch shows that prompted conversations about social issues (e.g., racism, gender equity, LGBTQIA).
