DIVERSITY AND THE ARTISTIC PROCESS
From Thought to Page

What does diversity in theater mean to you?  What does diversity actually look like on stage?

What are stereotypes? When is it justified to use them, if ever.

If you're not part of a marginalized group (woman, person of color, lgbtq, etc), then what do should the role/responsibility be, if any, in working towards a more diverse theater? 

When writing can your characters be cast ethnically/racially diverse, if those characteristics are not central to the characters?

What can we do, as an artistic community, to promote inclusion from the earliest stages of development that can influence professional levels?  

What can we do to foster an intersectional approach to diversity in theatre creation?
