Penguin seeks youth artist-leaders who want to deepen their theater skills through an equity lens.

PAC members who attend 3 out of 4 Retreats are eligible for a $75 stipend or service learning hours. Additionally, an additional $50 will be available for up to 3 PAC members interested in taking on more responsibility, leading workshops, retreat planning and production of the spring event, and driving youth engagement and social media.

PAC retreats focus on:

  • Connection, belonging, and relationship building.
  • Expanding your theatrical toolbox for a thriving future – arts and leadership skills through an equity lens with guest artists
  • Penguin season and strategic planning

Between retreats, PAC members engage with Penguin Productions in community outreach and development.

Space is limited. Apply now!

The Penguin Artistic Cohort advances individual and collective goals for artistic development, activism and advocacy, and social connection and cohesion. PAC members are on the front lines engaging in discussion and action to move Penguin towards being a more anti-racist organization. PAC members receive professional arts and leadership education, propose plays and workshop content, produce community events, and are ambassadors and bridge-builders in our community.
