Hi, Internet! It is time for me to talk about my wife again.
This is Katherine Craft. She started Conspire Theater in 2008. It is a very small non-profit in Austin provides theater and creative writing workshops to women incarcerated in Texas jails and prisons. Her partner Michelle Dahlenberg came onto the project about a year in, and they have built something that is really inspiring and incredible, that genuinely changes lives on a weekly basis.
And KLRU, the Austin PBS affiliate, agrees. The video up there is a five-minute documentary as part of the Women And Girls Lead series that showcase the work of “Inspiring Woman Leaders,” which definitely describes Kat. (It also features the first footage of an in-prison workshop that Kat has led, after almost five years. Which is really fascinating.)
