Audrey Rose Dégez
Audrey Rose Dégez began Cp4p International Productions in 2014, as an idea, a concept, a dream of a new way of engaging creative artists to imagine and ultimately create a better world.
Her first Create Poetry 4 Peace workshops took place in the Greater New Brunswick Area Charter School in collaboration with Bharati Carla Haynes of Garden of Healing. Since 2014, the project has grown to include workshops, exhibitions, and projects in Berlin, Paris, and Pittsburgh.
Cp4p's last project was Slovo. Theater Group, a unique artistic residency in Pittsburgh with 4 actresses from Kharkiv, Ukraine. Slovo. Theater Group was founded in April of 2022 to fight against oppression of Ukrainian culture by promoting Ukrainian culture abroad. Read Dégez' article in Howlround Theater Commons on Slovo.
