On December 17, 2012, SDCF and SDC hosted a discussion of Theatre for Social Change with guests Erik Ehn and Kamilah Forbes (Hip Hop Theatre Festival). Erik Ehn, a playwright, director, and educator, produces the Arts in the One World conference yearly, is Current Director of Writing for Performance at Brown University, and a founder of the RAT movement. Kamilah Forbes is the Artistic Director of the Hip-Hop Theater Festival (HHTF), a non-profit presenter of new theater written by hip-hop generation artists through the lens of the urban cultural aesthetic. She is also a member of the Folger Shakespeare performance troupe, a co-founder of the Nommo Cultural Arts Camp for under-privileged youth in Kingston, Jamaica, and a director. They share thoughts on their own work, their varied audiences, the role of equitable partnerships in their work, and how they nurture emerging artists. Listen in as these passionate artists discuss their experiences in creating theatre that, at its core, is a vehicle for communication of social thought and transformation.
