ABOUT THE ARTISTS
Farah Dinga is a San Diego based theater artist. Trained at UCSD, she has performed on numerous stages including: La Jolla Playhouse, New Village Arts, MOXIE Theatre, and many more. As a theatre artist, her work holds an emphasis in diversity, inclusion, and equity, in order to create safe spaces and accommodations for minority students and artists to be heard and grow their craft. This includes her time as the Artistic Director and founder of The Octopus Literary Salon’s dramatic program that provided opportunities to communities of color to take part in theatre and showcase their work.
