The State of Middle Eastern American Theater

Equity in the Arts

Missed our Middle Eastern American Writers Lab Launch this week? Or maybe you were there but you're mourning the fact that it's over? Either way, you're in luck, because you can relive the incredible experience of listening to our amazing Lab members say beautiful things, here!

On October 7, 2019, The Lark proudly marked the launch of this new program with a public event featuring the members of the Lab. The evening, hosted by Maia Directors, a consulting company for organizations and artists engaging with stories from the Middle East, included a panel conversation on the state of Middle Eastern American Theater. The writers spoke about their experiences writing in more than one language, telling stories informed by varying perspectives from across the world, and finding community in new countries.
