Keynote Speaker - Sarah Bellamy, Penumbra Theatre

Faculty, staff, students and alumni are invited to join us to kick off the ArtsXpo Career Exploration Symposium, with Sarah Bellamy, Artistic Director for Penumbra Theatre.

Sarah has designed several programs that engage patrons in critical thinking, dialogue, and action around issues of race and social justice. Select programs include Penumbra's RACE Workshop and the Summer Institute, a leadership development program for teens to practice art for social change. A graduate of Sarah Lawrence College, Ms. Bellamy also holds an M.A. in the Humanities from the University of Chicago. She has taught at Macalester College, the University of Minnesota, and served as Visiting Professor of Theatre and Culture at United Theological Seminary of the Twin Cities. Bellamy is a leading facilitator around issues of equity, diversity, and inclusion and has led coalition building efforts to address inequities in philanthropy and theatre. Her lectures on the power of race and representation have been presented across the country illuminating the ways in which images, narratives, and media influence perception and ultimately shape lives. She serves on the Board of Directors for Theatre Communications Group, The Jerome Foundation, and is a 2015 Bush Fellow.
