Cal Shakes’ Civic Dialogue Series seeks to explore the intersections between theater and issues affecting our community. Through facilitated dialogues with theater artists, cultural workers, community organizers (and more!)Cal Shakes’ Civic Dialogue Series examines how theater can be a tool for building bridges and igniting change.

Co-sponsored by the Department of Theater, Dance and Performance Studies, this year’s dialogue analyzes the ways in which traditional casting can act as a barrier to specific communities and illuminates the ways  performing arts organizations are creating more inclusive practices to engage a more diverse range of performing artists. Featured speakers include Melissa Hillman, Artistic Director of Impact Theater, and Desdemona Chiang, who will be directing Cal Shakes’ As You Like It in May.
