The TONYC Team and I are thrilled to announce Theatre of the Oppressed NYC’s new Executive Director: Meggan Gomez!
Meggan is a theatre-maker, advocate and activist. Her work and career have been shaped by the power of Theatre of the Oppressed, which she first experienced 13 years ago. She comes to TONYC from her role as the Theater Conservatory Director at Working Classroom in Albuquerque, New Mexico, which uses the arts to resist systemic injustices and imagine a more equitable society. Meggan’s affiliations include Cornerstone Theater and The Hemispheric Institute of Performance and Politics. Meggan is also on the steering committee of the Latinx Theater Commons, where she helps lead national efforts to expand opportunities for Latinx playwrights and theater artists.
