On Sunday, June 9, StateraArts hosted an intimate membership drive event in conjunction with Art Works Gallery and Artisans Art Gallery in Cedar City, Utah. Executive Director Melinda Pfundstein and Statera Board Member Sam White (pictured above) both spoke about, Statera’s grassroots work for gender parity in the arts, Statera’s unique mentorship program and the addition of a Southern Utah Mentorship Chapter in the winter of 2020. Both Pfundstein and White are in Cedar City directing in the 2019 Utah Shakespeare Festival season.
Founding members of Women of Will Theatre also spoke at the event. The theatre group was established in 2016 during a brainstorm at Statera’s 3rd National Conference.
