Theatre Communications Group (TCG) has announced the participants in the third round of the Rising Leaders of Color (RLC) Program. The program, which is supported by the Regional Arts Commission of St. Louis, the Howard Gilman Foundation, and the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, provides professional development and networking opportunities to early-career leaders, as well as an arts journalist, based in St. Louis City/County and New York City.
“The members of this new cohort bring a diverse set of experiences and a shared commitment to equity at the heart of arts leadership,” said Teresa Eyring, executive director of TCG, in a statement. “We look forward supporting their individual journeys, as well as amplifying their collective impact as part of an ever-growing intergenerational network of leaders of color.”
The group will include Sophie Ancival, Rosalind Early, Ariel Estrada, Bryce Goodloe, Pia Haddad, Peter J. Kuo, Carl Overly Jr., Anna Skidis Vargas, Gabe Taylor, and Jacqueline Thompson. The year-long program will kick off at the TCG National Conference in St. Louis from June 11 to 17, where the cohort will participate in development workshops and events.
