We make women heroes – on stage & off – by sharing their empowering stories.

Artemisia is committed to developing and creating career-altering opportunities for women identifying theatre artists of all racial and ethnic backgrounds. We recognize the impact of  racism, sexism, ageism and homophobia on intersecting marginalized identities and seek to  serve as disruptors, quieting the overpowering voice of white supremacy and heteronormativity.  We make women heroes of their own lives by sharing their stories and amplifying their voices. Artemisia invites anyone and everyone who wants to empower women to join us as artists and audiences.  The theatre’s namesake, Artemisia Gentileschi was a great feminist painter, forgotten by history. It’s why Artemisia Theatre was founded, to share women’s untold stories.  Artemisia’s leadership is one-hundred-percent women, and the theatre is organized as a 501 c 3 nonprofit in Illinois.
