Elizabeth M. Stewart is a New York City based lighting designer whose work has been seen in New York, London, Philadelphia, and more, in venues ranging from art gallery basements to off-Broadway theatres.
On Anti-Racism: I am a firm believer in working to make theatre a more equitable place, and strive to uphold anti-racist practices in my own work, both offstage in workplace policy and interactions, as well as artistically in what stories are being told and how. As a white theatre artist, I believe it is our duty to continuously educate ourselves on anti-racism and decolonization, and work to incorporate those ideals into our work and ways of being.
