Yesterday, faculty, staff, and students of the Theatre Department at Northwestern, along with the staff of the Wirtz Center for Performing Arts, where we produce our work, took part in the Ghostlight Project along side thousands of theatre-makers and audience members at hundreds of locations around the country.
From the Ghostlight Project website:
ON JANUARY 19TH, 2017 AT 5:30PM IN EACH TIME ZONE ACROSS THE COUNTRY
WE WILL GATHER OUTSIDE OF THEATERS TO CREATE A “LIGHT” FOR DARK TIMES AHEAD,
AND TO MAKE, OR RENEW, A PLEDGE TO STAND FOR AND PROTECT
THE VALUES OF INCLUSION, PARTICIPATION, AND COMPASSION FOR EVERYONE
REGARDLESS OF RACE, CLASS, RELIGION, COUNTRY OF ORIGIN, IMMIGRATION STATUS,
(DIS)ABILITY, AGE, GENDER IDENTITY, OR SEXUAL ORIENTATION
