Penumbra is a 45-year-old Black theatre company and has been a vital site for nurturing Black life and culture. We are now entering a new life cycle and evolving into a Center for Racial Healing that will serve Saint Paul, Minneapolis, greater Minnesota, and beyond.

The Penumbra Center for Racial Healing will be a brave, nurturing space where community is invited to be inspired by incredible art, to rest and restore through culturally responsive wellness programming, and to build skills in support of racial equity. In order to serve even more people and to broaden and deepen our impact, we hope to renovate and expand our current facility or build a new facility in Saint Paul.

Whether you are a longtime champion of the work we do or new to our organization, you can be part of our success story. We invite you to register for one our Community Feedback Sessions so that we can hear about your hopes, dreams, fears, concerns, and overall perception of the changes that may occur.

Register for our virtual session on Wednesday, December 8, from 4-5:30pm, or our in-person session at Penumbra on Thursday, December 9, from 11:30am-1pm. Hosted in partnership with Theatre Projects and Keen Independent.

There is no fee to attend. All are welcome!

Note: For our in-person session on December 9, we will require proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 PCR test result received within 72 hours prior to entry. All participants are required to be masked inside the venue regardless of vaccination status.
