Virtual Study Hall: New Works Movement Building in MN
June 12 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm
Continuing conversation and network building. Newcomers and returning attendees welcome!
Collaboration and relationship building is essential in this moment and the next. Our time will begin with provocations that acknowledge white supremacy culture and invite conversation about how we—as new work makers and producers of various budget sizes and types—can continue working together to do less harm.
This conversation is for any new work makers and producers in Minnesota who are interested in working together to support each other and to do better. Though this is not specifically a white learning space, it is likely that this space will be mostly attended by white people. We say this to acknowledge layered inequities, and we will work to center any BIPOC voices that choose to share in the space.
Original event description from 5/15/2020: With uncertainty around timelines for safely rehearsing and producing, many companies and organizations are in the process of reimagining their upcoming seasons. Whether you’re considering a programmatic shift to new works (playwright-driven or devised!) or you’re already a consistent new works producer, let’s discuss how we can come together as a community to create a network for support and resource sharing; to dream about what new works development looks like in the coming weeks, months, years; to continue work towards greater equity, inclusivity, and accessibility in storytelling; and to collectively amplify the incredible new works happening in Minnesota to the broader national community.
Join us for these “study hall” sessions to share conversation, learning, and strategy around specific topics with your performing arts peers around the state.
