Grow Together

Bird City offers innovative workshops for teams, teachers, and emerging artists. We also offer JEDI training to support inclusive communities. JEDI is justice, equity, diversity, and imagination.

Our approach works because we prioritize access and wellbeing in the creative process. We center joy and celebrate failure. We work with compassion and respect for people of all backgrounds and we move in alignment with our community values.

Bird City has wings. We're happy to travel online or in person.

What it costs

We use a sliding scale. Our Play It Forward initiative is our commitment to access and inclusion. We recognize that some people have more access to financial resources than others. We ask our collaborators to pay us equitably, in alignment with their access and ability.

 

Our sliding scale works on a system of honesty and trust. Lower income folks are invited to pay us a lower rate. Higher income folks are asked to pay us a higher rate. Our sliding scale recognizes financial inequities inherent in our education systems and affirms a need for change.

"Tavish came to my school for professional development on long form improv and it was a phenomenal experience!"
- Shay Mace, Educator in Maryland
