Research

research overview

  • The research of Beth Osnes focuses on 1) using theatre as a tool for young women to empower their voices for self-advocacy and civic participation (she received a major Outreach grant to research her approach) and 2) community engagement through performance for youth. She also uses this vocal empowerment work to focus specifically on gender equity in renewable energy development. She has presented on this work at numerous conferences and has done original field research in Panama, Guatemala, India, Namibia, Nicaragua, Tanzania and the Navajo Nation and has published on her findings. Also, she is co-founder of Inside the Greenhouse (ITG), an endowed initiative on the CU campus for creative climate communication. She created a musical performance in conjunction with ITG and the Rockefeller Foundation 100 Resilient Cities Initiative, Shine, and toured it to 8 international cities to engage youth voices in residence planning-http://www.insidethegreenhouse.org/shine/
