StateraArts takes positive action to bring women and TGNC (Transgender/Gender Non-Conforming) artists into full and equal participation in the Arts.
Statera, deriving its name from the Latin word for balance, works through an intersectional lens to improve opportunities for artists who identify as women and TGNC (Transgender/Gender Non-Conforming) through our unique programming and conferences. Positive action = positive change.
“Attending Statera’s national conference totally reframed my relationship with theatre. The whole conference shifted my understanding of my own work.” - Teresa Thuman, Artistic Director, Sound Theatre Company
A Note on Inclusion at StaterA
We use an inclusive definition of women. "Women" includes anyone on the gender spectrum who identifies (either always or some of the time) as a woman. This also includes non-binary people.
StateraArts works through an intersectional lens for gender parity. We understand and acknowledge that systems of oppression and discrimination are interdependent and span all social categorizations such as race, class, gender, ability, and sexual orientation as they apply to a given individual or group. Addressing one spoke of systematic discrimination or disadvantage means holistically addressing them all.
