Founded in 2004, Exposed Brick Theatre (EBT) is dedicated to telling untold stories, centering omitted narratives, and creating art at the intersection of identities. It believes that culture shifts toward equity and justice when all narratives are amplified.

Through Our Eyes is a new EBT project. The three-year mentorship opportunity will support six aspiring artists from refugee and immigrant communities to develop original plays. The playwrights will take part in a series of facilitated workshops and publicly stage their work in celebration. The project will help EBT address increasing hostility toward immigrant and refugee communities. It will also offer meaningful experiences for audiences and artists who don’t normally see themselves on stage.
