EveryBODY on Stage aims to break down stigma and fat-phobia in the arts.
Our goal is to reduce the harm done by body dysmorphia and disordered eating on the long-term health of artists and to encourage the positive representation of all body-types on stage.
As we fight for representation, we will actively seek out voices underrepresented because of race, ancestry, place of origin, ethnicity, citizenship, creed, disability, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, age, marital status, and/or family status.
Through fundraising and arts grants we aim to provide a residency for plus-sized artists to create content highlighting their experiences and create original work that puts bigger bodies centre stage. We would like to produce fat stories by fat people without making our experience the punchline (as is often seen in the media that currently exists). We aim to elevate the voices of body positive writers, creatives and performers.
