BWW Announcement: STATERA Mentorship Accepting Applications Now
It is a truth universally acknowledged that women dominate theater audiences, yet lack a proportionate power in theater administration, acting roles, production jobs, as designers and as produced playwrights.
Statera, a 501(c)(3) organization, wants to make a chang. By uplifting, amplifying, and advancing earlier-career women artists, the organization hopes to bring women "into full and equal participation in the arts." [Statera's understanding of the term "woman" is inclusive of all those who identify as a woman.]
Recently, Statera's Central Coast Chapter announced the roll-out of its mentorship program, which is accepting applications with a deadline of Saturday, June 1st. The current mentors include the impressively accomplished theater artists Kitty Balay, Emily Trask, Karin Henricks, and Z. According to the Statera website, mentors and mentees will meet together at least two hours a month, either in person, on the phone, or through a video conference.
