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 Rehearsing Possibilities, 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 Hilltop Unit at Gatesville, Austin Recovery Center, and throughout the Austin community. In summer 2013, we created Performing Possibilities, a theatre ensemble of women who have experienced jail or prison. Performances and workshops will happen throughout 2014; check our Events page for details.
