The Environmental Justice League Theatre Project
The Environmental Justice League is a community theater project housed in City Council District 10. For 8 weeks, we have met on Saturdays to develop our writing and performance skills to create an original theater piece on environmental justice. The ethnically diverse members of our group range from ages 20-90, and we conduct our rehearsal meetings in three languages— English, Spanish and Korean. As part of our learning, members will have attended a “Toxic Tour” through South LA conducted by Communities for a Better Environment, a guest workshop in “Theater of Trash” from puppeteer Paul Zaloom (http://www.paulzaloom.com/ <http://www.paulzaloom.com/> ), and visits from other guest experts on Environmental Justice. The workshop is facilitated by Artist-in-Residence Kristina Wong (http://www.kristinawong.com/ <http://www.kristinawong.com/> )
This program is made possible by an Artist-in-Residence grant from the City of Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs and is hosted by the Bus Riders Union (a progressive civil rights and environmental justice membership organization).
The William Grant Stills Art Center is a facility of the City of Los Angeles, Department of Cultural Affairs.
