Diversity in the Arts Workshop
NEXTFEST ARTS COMPANY is thrilled to announce our Diversity in the Arts Workshop as part of Nextfest 2017, with support from Theatre Alberta’s Workshop by Demand program.
Calling all arts advocates, allies and anyone interested in learning about equity and diversity in the arts! Join Gina Puntil (Work Plays Schools Program, ArtEquity2016) and Jenna Rodgers (Chromatic Theatre, CCEDA) in exploring how inequities – both visible and invisible – affect our theatre practices.
This full-day workshop will engage both your mind and body. Starting from individual and moving through to the societal, we will provide you with some tools and strategies to address, assess and disrupt inequity in your personal practice, creative work and in society as a whole.
