Increasing Access in the arts for Transgender and Nonbinary Adults

From acting training to a technicians apprenticeship program we’re closing the gap and equipping trans and nonbinary creatives for success.

“Uprising Theatre Company provides a vital space for trans and queer artists to develop their art and their practices. Their specific focus means that they’re building a community of culturally competent artists. As a playwright who writes for and about marginalized communities, one of the perpetual fears is that you’ll be working with a team that wants to exploit you rather than support you, and I can happily report that Uprising’s team successfully raises the standard for ethical, authentic representation. This is the kind of company that you want to work with again, and again, and again.”

Playwright Leanna Keyes

Creating possibility models for children and youth

We’re creating educational programming that is fun, safe, and creative!


No matter who you are or what you care about you can use your own story to make change, right where you are! Uprising hosts workshops on how to use your own story in the work for justice! They’ll also come to you (in person or on zoom) for workshops on trans issues, storytelling, and so much more! Interested? Just send us an email!
