About

Clutch is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to creating opportunities for emerging female artists in theatre and film. By commissioning and producing original works, Clutch provides vital creative space for female writers, directors, actors, and designers to collaborate and work together. 

Our work is guided by the following principles:

 

Inclusiveness

Diversity of experience, thought, and creed is key to crafting a new narrative for female artists in theatre and film. Clutch welcomes the voices and work of writers, actors, directors, designers, technicians, producers, and artists on the gender spectrum who identify as female. All ages. All colors. All races. All faiths. All disabled persons. All sexual orientations. You are #SoClutch.

Creating Collaborative Space

Clutch was conceived as a platform for professional working artists to tackle gender parity - together. We initiate and share new opportunities that feed the collective and facilitate greater collaboration. By providing vital creative space for female artists to risk and grow - working with, not for, each other - Clutch strives to advance emerging voices and leaders in our field.

 

Courageous, Front-Footed Action

No waiting. Creating. Clutch delights in challenging and disrupting existing industry models of creation. By setting aggressive timelines for projects and initiatives we aim to have nothing sitting in a drawer, unrealized and unseen on stage or screen.
