The Shrill Collective seeks to effect civic, social, and economic change through the union of activism and performing arts by supporting artists who are women, non binary, and other marginalized genders. We believe that by giving women and non-binary artists an elevated platform to share their unique artistic perspective and experiences, we can transform a pipeline that has traditionally favored cis male storytelling. By pairing these stories with local changemaking organizations, we hope to advance social, political, and economic justice and equity. Women's Voices. Amplified
