Spotlight On Carin Zakes

A look back at Carin Zakes who directed our production, 2071: The World We’ll Leave Our Grandchildren. Ripple Effect Artists understands that we live in a society that can do better with acknowledging the talents of women and people of color. So, when we come across someone as immensely talented as Carin Zakes that gives us the opportunity to have a woman director on a production that is immensely important to us, of course we jump at it!

Spotlights are created by the Ripple Effect Artists’ Editorial Desk. Each Spotlight highlights people, productions and initiatives that inspire us. ​​At Ripple Effect Artists, we believe in building each other up and giving credit where credit is due. Taking charge of the future of our world is a more three-dimensional responsibility than it appears to be. It is not just about identifying the most pertinent social issues that need to be highlighted and discussed. It is also equally important to make a difference every single day by exhibiting kindness, compassion and empathy towards everyone we come in contact with. It is important to recognize that everyone who is chasing a dream is fighting inner demons of fear and insecurity every day. In a society where anything off the beaten track is considered a risk not worth taking, these people are giving a new name to courage. Thus, we think it is crucial to build each other up and encourage everyone to be the best version of themselves. Every. Single. Day.
