December 10, 2019
Organization Name: Intersections Festival
Organization Location: Seattle, WA
Intersections is a comedy festival focused on equity, inclusion, and representation. Our third annual festival will take place March 26-29, 2020 and is produced in association with Theatre Off Jackson!
We showcase performers in improv, sketch, stand-up, spoken word, music, theatre, dance, burlesque, drag, storytelling, and more! Intersections focuses on inclusion in terms of race, gender, disability, and LGBTQIA+. We hope these performances bring new voices to the forefront, and spark conversation and action for social justice and representation in our community.
We celebrate incredible performers who enrich our community through their unique identities. We actively fight white supremacy, homophobia, transphobia, racism, sexism, ageism, and ableism. We strive to cultivate an environment of critical analysis, holding our community and ourselves accountable for the inequities that currently exist. We work to create and sustain systems that forge a new path in the direction of true equity.
