Carlos Diaz Stoop (he/him/his)

A gay, Latino, 1.5 Generation American, Independent Creative Producer, Arts Administrator, and J.E.D.I (Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion) Advocate

I hold an M.S. in Arts Administration from Drexel University and a B.A. in Theatre Arts from West Chester University of Pennsylvania and have been a theatre professional and arts administrator since completing my undergraduate degree. From 2018 until 2021 I served as Program Associate at The Pew Center for Arts & Heritage, a regional multidisciplinary grant-maker for arts and culture in Philadelphia, PA where I supported the Performance program, cross-program functions, and served as the coordinator and founding member of the Center’s first Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Committee.

In July of 2021 I joined Beth Morrison Projects as their Associate Producer for New Works where I assist in the development and world premier of new, contemporary operas. I am also a freelance creative producer, mentor, and administrator in the Philadelphia region and have experience in all aspects of theatrical productions.
