The North Texas Theater Anti-Racist Trust Initiative is a project designed to identify and acknowledge anti-racist and DEI work being done by theaters in the DFW area. This information will then be disseminated to the DFW theater and patron community in order to identify those theaters making an effort to create safe working environments for BIPOC and marginalized groups. We hope to build trust between these communities in order to increase audition turnout, open dialogue, and improve the relationships between theater management and theater participants (e.g. actors, technicians, directors, designers, etc.)
