The Real Work - Cover Image
The Real Work is a 6-episode audio miniseries exploring transformative justice as a tool for preventing, addressing, and healing harm in Bay Area theater and beyond. Over the course of one year, nearly thirty local theater makers gathered monthly to learn together about transformative justice, under the facilitation of Mia Mingus, co-founder of the Bay Area Transformative Justice Collective. This podcast series documents our learnings with an aim to share out and grow our collective capacity to practice transformative justice, especially in our arts and activist spaces.

True to its name, The Real Work reveals the seemingly mundane relational practices we can engage with one another to build cultures of safety and thriving within our communities. From communication skills, giving and receiving feedback, and learning how to make good apologies, to understanding roots of harm, TJ illuminates patterns of violence and abuse and offers dynamic ways of taking accountability to fundamentally shift them.

The Real Work: A Podcast About Theater Culture & Transformative Justice is created & hosted by Tierra Allen, in partnership with We Rise Production.

This project is supported by an Investing in Artists Grant from the Center for Cultural Innovation & the City of Oakland’s Cultural Funding Program, and was incubated with initial support from CalShakes.
