DEIA Policy

Will Geer’s Theatricum Botanicum’s Commitment to Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Access.

Ancestral Lands

We want to acknowledge that we gather on the ancestral lands, past and present, of the Chumash [CHOO-mash], the Fernandeño Tataviam [fer-nan-DAY-nyo ta-ta-VEE-am], and Gabrielino Tongva [TONE-gva] (also called the Kizh [keech] Nation, kizh being the word for home in the Gabrielino/Tongva language). We honor with gratitude the land itself and the people who have stewarded it throughout the generations. For those of us, who are not Indigenous to this land, we must acknowledge the lasting impact of the California genocide on its native peoples. This calls us to commit to continuing to learn how to be better stewards of the land we are honored to inhabit as well.

DEIA Report Card

Will Geer’s Theatricum Botanicum has made a commitment to the Los Angeles Anti-Racist Theatre Standards which were created by a diverse collective of LA theatre artists inspired and influenced by the work of We See You White American Theatre.

In an effort to prioritize transparency, this page will be regularly updated following each season with our DEIA Report Card. This will include demographic information and progress towards Theatricum’s goals related to Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Access. In the meantime, our leadership demographics and budget can be found on Guidestar.
