Currently at the helm of the festival are Melissa Riker and Maura Nguyen Donohue. The Short play series is produced by Vinnie Marano. Guest curators are John C. Robinson and Women in Motion’s 2017/18 Commissioned Artists Joya Powell, Garnet Henderson, and Rebecca Lazier.

In concurrence with the inclusive values the festival was founded on, this executive team focuses on art generated, written, directed, choreographed, composed and performed by artists who expand the definition of a women’s festival. The producers strive to create a full, empowering, festival dedicated to a community that hears, sees and celebrates women, gender non-conforming and non-binary artists in all of their dynamic diversity.
