Wayward Voices is a space to amplify, uplift, and empower BIPOC artists. Our goal is to produce work that inspires and activates our artists now and our artists to come. Let this be our a jump to produce work that reflects the truth of our world, and the many stories ready to be told.



After last year’s successful and touching presentations of Becoming Austin Nation, They Tend to Themselves and Confessions of Your Ethnically Ambiguous Best Friend we are excited to bring back Season two of Wayward Voices’ Solo, Duo, Trio!

Local artists, company members, and former cast members will pitch small format productions that can include anything from storytelling to music to dance. From these submissions, a team of company members will select 2 artists to perform their work.

Wayward Voices will serve as the producer for each project and assist in shaping these pieces as needed. The artist will receive a stipend of $500 which will be used for talent and expenses as the presenting artist determines.
