The Shape of Trust: Stories of racism, racial equity, and belonging in the workplace

Free tickets available for live performances on June 4, 5, and 13

Based on stories of racism, racial equity, resilience and belonging collected from the City of Seattle workforce, The Shape of Trust examines ways racism and its intersections with sexism and other forms of oppression are embedded in the culture, norms, practices and policies affecting the workplace environment. It shows us the truth, courage, and leadership of those most impacted by racism, and points us toward opportunities for transformation.

Written and directed by award-winning artist Sara Porkalob.
