Where's 'Safe'?

Safe Communities & Schools Coalition
April 6th, 1999
McCracken Hall 214

Where’s ‘Safe’? depicts the safety issues facing a Midwestern high-school student “coming out” in 1999. The event is as much a forum for public discussion as a performance: Audience members shape the event by engaging the characters and each other in an open reflection on the scenes played out in the performance.

The April 6 performance at the Ohio University School of Education was co-sponsored with the Institute for Democracy in Education and the Ohio University Cultural Studies in Education Program.

Power Plays: diversity, ethics, and the workplace: Bridging the Diversity Gap

Bridging the Diversity Gap project
October 12th, 1999
Morton Hall 223

powerplayPOWER PLAYS is the story of a group of students whose winter term job turns sour when they decide they’re being discriminated against.

How the students respond to the situation and what happens in the end depends on advice provided by audience members during the course of the production.

The audience interaction looks at:

  • how real/perceived diversity issues play a role in the job interviewing process and the workplace; and
  • how to deal with the ethical dilemmas this potential/real discrimination creates.

The October 12 performance, part of Career Week 1999, was a production of the “Bridging the Diversity Gap” interactive theater troupe. This production was cosponsored by the Office of Career Development.
