Our Stage / Our Voices is a new program developed and sponsored by the UIS Performing Arts Center in which members of historically underrepresented communities address the issues of inequality in the regional performing arts with a goal of achieving diversity and inclusion. The artist-in-residence position will rotate annually as Our Stage / Our Voices works to amplify voices and stories throughout the community and create spaces for opportunity, understanding and originality.

Area actor, director, and performing artist Reggie Guyton will serve as the inaugural Our Stage / Our Voices artist-in-residence. During the 2022 calendar year, Mr. Guyton will collaborate with regional Black artists to explore and celebrate the Black experience in America.
