2018 Art and Change Grant – $2,500

Mal will lead a group of LGBTQI artists in the creation of The Queer Ghost Project, an interactive theater piece that uses historical research to explore queer ancestry and the erasure of queer identity. They hope that this work provides an artistic corrective to the assumption that queer and trans lives exists as a contemporary phenomenon. It will address structural lack of opportunities for LGBTQI people in theatre providing substantive work and representation for LGBTQI artists. The four-day devised theater workshop will culminate in a one-time final community showing in October 2018.
