EMMA Talks: Engaging Monologues Mutual Aid

The core purpose of EMMA Talks is to bring important stories by women identified* writers, activists, thinkers, storytellers, makers and doers, from the periphery to the public.
*including two spirited, trans and gender non-conforming folks.

Why EMMA Talks?

Together their stories will build a powerful and engaging collection of talks, celebrating and building on the conversations, imaginings, and hard work of so many individuals, communities and movements, which will lead to a creative cross-pollination of ideas.

Tell Me More About EMMA Talks!

Through professionally produced and accessible monologues, both live and digital, EMMA Talks will counteract the social silencing of women’s stories and work. EMMA Talks carves out a well-deserved space for women identified folks to share their stories and their work with a diverse and large audience.
