Episode #2 of the podcast series Gender, Sexuality & Art
In this podcast series, ESR Hanna Szabó interviews artists who are involved in creative projects that address topics around gender and sexuality.
In the second episode, Madison Jolliffe (she/they) intersectional feminist theatre maker and activist talks about their work in the field of inclusion and diversity management in cultural institutions. Madie and Hanna discuss the challenges institutions, such as theatres or cultural festivals, face when it comes to creating an inclusive and safe environment. They highlight the different levels that are taken into account: the stories told, the people who tell these stories, and the institutions that curate these events.
Madison (she/they) is an intersectional feminist theatre maker, teacher and activist, originally from Canada and now living and working in the Netherlands. They have a master’s degree from Utrecht University in Contemporary Theatre, Dance and Dramaturgy and a BFA from Concordia University in Performance Creation. Her current artistic practice, the day after yesterday with Utopia Syndicate, is concerned with fostering hope through utopian speculation.
