Distinguished Alumni Talk: Mercedes Bátiz-Benét on supporting IBPoC voices in Victoria’s arts community
When it comes to working in the arts and theatre sectors, IBPoC artists (Indigenous, Black, People of Colour) face a number of barriers due to systemic discrimination—yet IBPoC artists have always created innovative and bold new work.

As Puente Theatre’s artistic director, Distinguished Fine Arts Alumna Mercedes Bátiz-Benét (Writing BFA ’02) has a number of IBPoC initiatives underway that will help address the gap in mentorship and support across the industry and in our own community.

Discover how Puente Theatre supports and amplifies IBPoC voices and perspectives in this important discussion with Fine Arts Acting Associate Dean Adam Con.

A multi-disciplinary artist, writer and award-winning director, Mercedes’ direction of Puente Theatre’s "Fado, The Saddest Music in the World" earned her the JAYMAC Outstanding Production Award at the 2020 Greater Victoria Regional Arts Awards.
