High-impact experiential learning that changes the way

people see the world, and themselves.


Experience Bechdel Project’s "life changing" workshops and residencies - designed to illuminate the need for new narratives and empower participants to fulfill that need.

Even one hour can forever change how you see our world, and your role in it.


The Workshop:

Bechdel Project Founding Artists will lead your students and faculty through their unique mix of interactive exercises. Participants leave with a new awareness as well as feeling empowered to make a change in their world. Past participants have called it "Life-changing" and "Inspirational."

3 Day Residency:

The 3-day residency builds on the exercises in the 1-day residency and quickly moves into writing short Bechdel passing works. Day 2 is spent on new work and rewrites, and on Day 3 those pieces are presented in a staged reading. "One of the most amazing things I have ever experienced."

1 Week Residency:

Our most intensive residency. Three sessions per day consisting of a morning writing block, afternoons built around Bechdel Project’s unique physical practice and ensemble building exercises, followed by evening writing, devising, or rehearsals. The week culminates with a performance of the student’s work. Suitable for up to 18 highly motivated participants.

6 Week Residency:

A complete immersion into female narratives written and performed by your students. While the 3-day Residency is a quick sketch, our 6-week Residency allows for a deeper unpacking and exploration of women’s stories. Students write pieces that are then staged as a bare bones mini festival or combined into a company devised work.
