Diversity, Equity & Inclusion
We believe in the transformative power of art to promote wonder, empathy, and understanding in the world. In pursuit of this vision we resolve to foster and sustain a diverse, equitable, and inclusive environment where all members of our community can thrive in life and art. This vision requires an ongoing commitment to assess our organizational culture on a regular basis and ensure that our practices and operations are explicitly anti-racist. Through rigorous interrogation of our personal and professional practices, we commit to dismantling the barriers to the creation, learning, and celebration of the communal practice of making live theater.
Hillbarn Theatre & Conservatory is dedicated to championing diverse voices which celebrate our shared humanity and challenge us to honor it. This work is enshrined in a legacy of artists, faculty, staff, and students who have over decades advocated for and borne the emotional toll of this work.
We commit to struggle together for equity, diversity, justice and inclusion.
