Our Commitment to Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, and Accessibility (IDEA)
Two River believes the essence of theater is democratic: it invites us to encounter, consider and perhaps adopt other points of view, if only for a brief time in a darkened theater.
We aspire to build an environment in which artists, audiences, employees, and board members from different backgrounds and experiences together form an institution that is inclusive, diverse, equitable, and accessible.
Two River is committed to featuring work written and/or performed by artists representing all backgrounds, abilities, ages, sexual orientations, and genders every season. While our commitment to diversity may be reflected in most of our productions and programs, we acknowledge that our actions internally and externally have at times been inconsistent and fallen short. We know this must change – not incrementally and sporadically, but intentionally and fundamentally.
The INCLUSION, DIVERSITY, EQUITY, & ACCESSIBILITY (IDEA) Collective is made up of full- and part-time staff representatives from departments across the theater, to address these initiatives on an ongoing and comprehensive basis.
Board of Trustees
We are continuing to diversify our Board of Trustees to be more representative and reflective of the community we serve. A Governance Committee aids the board in meeting their responsibilities, in having effective communication, developing best practices for boundaries between Board and staff, and ensuring the Board composition is diverse.
