New: Anonymous Feedback Form for Students of Color

Trainings and Workshops on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion: view the facilitated training resources we’ve offered, and request resources for your project or student group.   The Anonymous Feedback Form for Students of Color is intended to provide an anonymous space for students of color to name issues, express concerns, and offer suggestions to help Platt House, the PAC Shop, and the student performing arts at Penn community become more equitable and racially just entities and spaces.
Think Tank Performing Arts Peer Review
Think Tank (formerly the Advisory Committee on Inclusive Programming) is a student assembly supported by Platt House staff. In open meetings, we brainstorm equity initiatives to support the ever-changing needs and interests of our student performing arts community. Get reminders about the next Think Tank meeting The Community Ticketing Program, which serves students as well as local community partners, facilitates greater engagement with our performing arts groups by keeping ticket costs from being a financial barrier. Sign up for free ticket offers, or donate seats to your own performance. Our newest initiative, Performing Arts Peer Review (PAPR) is a dialogue and feedback system to help arts groups align their work with their values and intentions. We are looking for student reviewers interested in equity and representation in the arts to participate as Peer Reviewers for our upcoming launch! Apply to be a Peer Reviewer here.

What is the Arts Equity Campaign?

Platt Student Performing Arts House is Penn’s hub for the student performing arts, and the advisory home to a vast array of dancers, singers, instrumentalists, poets, comedians, and thespians, as well as talented and essential choreographers, directors, producers, technicians, and crew!
In this large and complicated network of student-run performance groups, our artists are variably privileged and challenged, centered and marginalized, within their groups and within the broader student culture at Penn. We’re always looking for ways to interrogate these gaps and address the changing needs of our artists.
In coordination with our mission of campus engagement, our Arts Equity programming works towards constant development in our programming to serve the full performing arts community in all its different genres and forms, while pursuing equity, representation, and greater accessibility in their operations.
