The Shrill Collective

The Shrill Collective is  a woman-founded, woman-centric-activist-theatrical-organization (WF-WCATO, if ya nasty.) Composed of female identifying artists, our community seeks to effect civic, social, and economic change through the union of activism and the performing arts. We believe that by giving women an elevated platform to share their unique artistic perspective and experiences, we can transform a pipeline that has traditionally favored male storytelling as the sole encapsulation of the human experience. By pairing these stories with local changemaking organizations, we hope to amplify the beneficial impact that the advancement and prosperity of women has on humankind.

Women's Voices. Amplified.
