I Am We Are
Social Justice Theatre Troupe
I Am We Are was founded with collaborative sponsorship from the Diversity Office and the Department of Theatre and Dance. From the beginning, its mission included the use of performance to create constructive conversations about race, gender, sexuality and identity. When Amy Seham began teaching at Gustavus, she forged a partnership with the director of Diversity for advising I Am We Are and for identifying, contacting and encouraging students of diverse experiences and perspectives to see the group as an open and valuable resource for them.
Through performances, workshops, and other outreach, I Am We Are theatrically illuminates and counteracts injustice. It necessitates a troupe and repertoire that is diverse in every capacity because the goal of I Am We Are is to aid in the creation of a world in which this work is no longer necessary.
