Anti-Oppression Progressive


In 2020 we included opportunities for the burlesque community to access meaningful ways we can evolve as industry leaders, producers, and teachers. In 2021, we continued this learning by introducing an Anti-Oppression Progressive that will cover topics including:

  • Fundamentals of Diversity - Equity, and Inclusion

  • Disrupting Unconscious Bias

  • Unlearning Anti-Blackness

Stay tuned post-festival for the remainder of our 2023 progressive anti-oppression workshop schedule!
