The List includes information such as work experience, portfolios, and resumes to make filling open positions easier, while expanding everyone's professional network.

About The List by FTG
Galvanized by the national uprising in defense of Black lives in the spring of 2020 and the need for a long overdue reckoning with racial issues in our city and industry, a group of Chicago theatre professionals launched this resource to uplift the work of BIMPOC Practitioners. We were directly inspired by the national list of BIPOC Theater Designers and Technicians created by Megan Sandberg-Zakian, but felt that a more curated and localized list would be beneficial to our community. We hope that this resource can be of help to you, whether you are a Practitioner or a List Accessor.
