Poster that says Freedom Dreaming

“Freedom Dreaming: Envisioning an Antiracist Middlebury” is a research and theatre piece examining the academic experience of BIPOC students at Middlebury College. The project has roots and wings in student voice via the core question: “What would an antiracist Middlebury look like, sound like, feel like in an academic setting?” We were interested in holding space for struggle while saving room for possibility. To do so we conducted over 60 interviews with mostly BIPOC students on our campus. We then transcribed and coded those interviews and used them as the basis of this theatre piece.
