Seattle Theatre Group's Community Advisory Group (CAG) creates and holds space for the greater Puget Sound BIPOC, LGBTQ+, Disabled and/or Neurodivergent Communities to gather and converse; empowering individuals to participate, share knowledge and support the art they want to experience; thereby making STG venues and programs safe and accessible for all.
Seattle Theatre Group is greatly indebted to those who participate and share their knowledge, stories and passion for the arts.
