During the month of June, four independent theatre makers created and disseminated The Theatre Makers of Color Outreach Survey. The survey’s purpose is to hear the voices of artists of color and to listen to their experiences in the midst of working inside organizations and institutions owned, operated and run day to day by a majority of white professionals. Within 48 hours of gathering feedback and sharing the questions with artists, affinity groups, supportive organizations, the unanticipated response was swift and almost overwhelming for the survey’s creators Stacey Rose, Daaimah Mubashshir, Keelay Gipson, and Nissy Aya.
