Transpose the Stage is a grassroots, community-driven initiative focused on amplifying local voices and facilitating collaboration between artists and institutions until theatre spaces are characterized by dignity, acknowledgment, and respect for social difference.

Opportunities to get involved will be listed here, and in updates under the ‘get involved‘ category.

Ongoing: Our ‘Letter to Audiences’ Podcast is available on Spotify.

The last 8 minutes includes calls to action and information that can support you to advocate in your theatre community. We’d love to hear from you about the work you are doing to practice your agency and hold institutions accountable to inclusion and accessibility.

July 2021: Participate in ‘Letter to Audiences’ at Found Fest 2021

Letter to Audiences, brought to you by artists Natércia Napoleão and April MacDonald Killins, is an equity in theatre themed project to forge a conversation with amiskwaciwâskahikan (Edmonton) arts patrons, showing where they have agency and power to profoundly shift the theatre industry.

(survey is now closed) First up, we invite audiences to stop by and participate in our YEG Theatre Patron Perspectives on Equity survey. Click here to participate! Findings will be released at a later date through Common Ground Arts.

Have you heard that theatre is going through a major reckoning in regards to equity? Click here during the Festival July 8-11 (2021) to listen to Natércia and April’s pilot episode of a new podcast exploring equity in Edmonton theatre.
Podcast is approximately 40 minutes in length.

This podcast is now live on Spotify!

Join Natércia, April, and a small number of other community members for a solution-focused conversation about equity in theatre. Book your conversation slot on Saturday, July 10.
This will be a seated, outdoor, distanced conversation at a private location near the Found Grounds in Old Strathcona. We encourage all participants to be masked throughout the event. This location is wheelchair-accessible.
