OUTFEST and ANTHONY MEINDL’S ACTOR WORKSHOP are proud and excited to offer five scholarships specifically for actors and aspiring actors from the Trans and Non-Binary community.
For close to 25 years, AMAW has striven to be a safe haven of artistic exploration and expression for every person who comes through our doors. As a training center for Creatives of all kinds, within the industry of Media/Film/TV/Performance/Theatre and Acting Theory & Technique, we intend to be a leader in inspiring and guiding best practices of full human expression.
Our studios are committed to creating a safe and nurturing environment for members of our Trans and Non-Binary Community, Faculty & Staff, and any other members of an oppressed or under-represented group.
Our goal is to offer a safe and nurturing environment for all actors and create opportunities to increase the level of representation both at our own studio as well as in the industry as a whole.
OUTFEST®, est. 1982 is one of the only global LGBTQIA+ arts, media and entertainment organizations whose programs empower artists, communities and filmmakers to transform the world through their stories, while also supporting the entire life-cycle of their career.
Outfest under Outfest Forward Artist Development Programs have given thousands of underrepresented artists, filmmakers and future leaders in entertainment the opportunity to discover and develop their careers in entertainment. There is a deficit in opportunities for trans and non-binary actors, so this is our opportunity to provide further training in addition to providing an opportunity to share their craft on a bigger stage.
