Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Award (EDI) given to Rahul Varma, director of the Teesri Duniya Theatre

Congratulations to the Teesri Duniya Theatre, which fosters diversity on the stage and gives a voice to women and underrepresented minority artists. A richly deserved award.

The Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Award (EDI), a partnership between the Conseil des arts de Montréal and the Montreal English Theatre Awards, was given to the Teesri Duniya Theatre at the METAs ceremony on October 14. The jury wanted to acknowledge the organization’s work in creating diversity on stage, hiring emerging artists, highlighting underrepresented individuals and groups in Montréal’s arts scene, and generally taking action to give minorities a place in the history of theatre. Rahul Varma, artistic director of the Teesri Duniya Theatre, received the award from Nathalie Maillé, the Conseil’s executive director.
