COMMUNITY
RESOURCES

Many different concerns and issues arise in theater making and education, and finding help can be a dubious task. We have created a hub for resources to make it easier to find information to address concerns, get assistance, or learn more about complicated issues. We are also in the midst of amazing cultural shifts in the United States spurred by initiatives like the #Metoo Movement and Black Lives Matter. We have reached a tipping point on many fronts. Awareness is breaking out all over because of the relentless voices calling for justice and change. We want to amplify these conversations that parallel and support the kind of culture shift MN-TAC is attempting to manifest.
