Ruby Slippers Theatre Will Do More
In addition to ongoing, current efforts that reflect our vision and mission to champion and celebrate diversity in the playwrights, directors, and actors we work with, RST is committed to doing more.
Listening, learning, supporting, and sharing:
Prioritizing diversity and inclusion in our artistic direction and programming, and organizational oversight and operations:
Continuing to do the work to expand and deepen our allyship, and continuing to strive in solidarity to change systems of oppression towards shared liberation and reconciliation.
In our 2020/21 season, we will feature six female-identifying Indigenous playwrights and six female-identifying Indigenous directors, with full Indigenous production/design teams.
