Where We Are
Bechdel Project's studio spaces are located on the unceded lands of the Lanape people. We recognize that we benefit from the ongoing legacies of colonialism and white supremacy, even as we work to dismantle those systems. We are committed to uplifting BIPOC voices, respecting traditional lands, and working with communities towards reconciliation.
