Introducing the 4th Season of Wayward Voices!

The 2024  Season

We are so excited to continue Wayward Voices, our initiative to produce work by and for BIPOC Artists.


Wayward Voices is a space to amplify, uplift, and empower BIPOC artists. Our goal is to produce work that inspires and activates artists and artists in development.

Wayward Voices will be the foundation of The Wayward Artist's commitment to producing work that reflects the truth of our existence and to tell the many stories that are ready to be let loose into the world.

Struggles with addiction, friendship, love, and the challenges of adulthood are at the center of the story. Jackie, a petty drug dealer, is just out of prison and trying to stay clean. He's also still in love with his coke-addicted childhood sweetheart, Veronica. Ralph D. is Jackie's too-smooth, slightly slippery sponsor. He's married to the bitter and disaffected Victoria, who, by the way, has the hots for Jackie. And then there's Julio, Jackie's cousin...a stand-up, "stand by me" kind of guy.

Wayward Voices provides grants to artists who identify as Black, Indigenous, and People of Color, our goal is to continue to increase the size of that grant. A donation to the Wayward Voices fund today ensures more amazing art tomorrow and in the future.
