Mission and Vision
Our mission is to offer incarcerated women and their allies a healing and empowering experience through theatre and creative writing.
Our vision is that every woman realizes her potential as a creative, worthy being.
Conspire Theatre began as a five week project in the Travis County Correctional Complex (TCCC) in the summer of 2009. Since then, the organization has led year-round theatre and creative writing workshops with women in minimum and maximum security at TCCC and published two books of writing by women in the workshops. Conspire has also worked with women in the Hiltop Unit at Gatesville, Austin Recovery Center, and in the Austin community. Conspire’s latest project, Performing Possibilities, is a full length play written and performed by women who have experienced jail or prison. Performances will happen throughout 2013 and 2014; check our Events page for details.
