2016 Art and Change Grant – $2,245

Throughout the summer of 2016, Donna will offer a series of free improvisational and clowning performance workshops, open exclusively to women and trans people. This safe and supportive performance training will empower people to speak up within a creative process and explore ways of telling their own stories. Donna hopes to provide an alternative type of performance training that honors the individual and works to counter how patriarchy, ableism, homophobia, cis-sexism, and white supremacy affect our ability to be our whole selves on stage.
