Production on Deck | Be Sure to Update Your Listing in the BIPOC Theater Designers and Technicians Google Doc

Michael S. Eddy • NewsStage DirectionsTheater News • August 11, 2021

Production on Deck, helmed by David ‘dstew’ Stewart, with partner Sarah Lozoff, and consultants Bear Bellinger, Kate Coltun, and Sheldon Lane, is teaming up with Megan Sandberg-Zakian, creator of the BIPOC Theater Designers and Technicians Google Doc, to update this useful document to help inform producers, theater companies and others looking to bring more inclusion and diversity to the hiring pipeline. The list, which has been around for six years now, is most powerful when current which is why Production on Deck is urging theater makers to update their information on this highly utilized and very important resource.

In order to help maintain the integrity of the document, it is now “View Only” and information is added and edited via Google Forms. If you are currently on the list please take the time to see if your information is still current. If so, great! If not, please it only takes a moment to fill out the form to get your info updated. If  you are a theater designer or technician who identifies as non-white, BIPOC, or of color and would like to be included on the list you may add your information using this form as well. And if you want to remove your information from the list, you may use the form for that, too.

With a focus on inclusion, diversity, equity, and belonging, Production on Deck broadens the definition of “the best person for the job” to one that welcomes the whole of an individual into a room.
