Woodshed Collective

The Woodshed for Art, Thought, and Culture at the Racial Justice Institute announces the launch of the Woodshed Collective. The Woodshed Collective is a multi-generational and international group of primarily Black creatives who gather to seed and develop new performance research methodologies for storytelling and experiment together with interdisciplinary creative forms. Under the creative direction of Anita Gonzalez, the Woodshed Collective works with scholars, researchers, and creatives who are actively making new written or devised work (which may include performance, sound, choreography, production, or visual works).

We will be partnering with Studio Theatre in Washington D.C. who have agreed to host our upcoming Woodshed Collective sessions.
