Clutch is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to creating opportunities for women artists in theatre and film. By commissioning and producing original works, Clutch provides vital creative space for women to collaborate.
Our work is guided by the following principles:
Diversity of experience, thought, and creed is key to crafting a new narrative for women artists in theatre and film. Clutch welcomes and strives to amplify the voices and work of all artists who identify as women. 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 women 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.
Over the past five years, paid jobs were created for 126 members of
Creative Teams, Cast and Crew, including 99 women.
That's gender parity in action!
