Intersections: A Celebration of Seattle Performance is a comedy festival focused on equity, inclusion, and representation. The festival runs March 22-25, 2018 at Youngstown Cultural Arts Center. The festival will showcase performers in improv, sketch, stand-up, burlesque, drag, storytelling, spoken word, music, theatre, and dance. We are focusing on inclusion in terms of race, gender, disability, and LGBTQIA+. We hope these performances will 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.
