From the gathering host:

Hello friends.

Hope your August has been good. Seems like many of us have been escaping from the city this month to escape and rejuvenate. Looking forward to getting back together to chat again.

This conversation is open to any performing arts designers, technicians, and production team members who are interested in working together towards an antiracist performing arts community, discussing what we can do individually and collectively.
The discussion will shift as needed based on those in the room, but for the breakout groups we’ll have some questions to start things off at least, looking at barriers to entry, contracts and process related issues. I’ll post more details on those several days before the meeting so as you can gather thoughts as needed.

During the breakout group portion of this meeting, we will offer a BIPOC-only space for those interested. Group share back from the BIPOC-only space will be optional. We will not be recording this event, in order to offer a space where people can share openly and honestly. Instead, we will be taking notes and writing a summary to share with a broader audience.

Looking forward to the continued discussion. Details on agenda will be posted in the coming days.

If you have any questions or thoughts beforehand please feel free to reach out to me at pomorrow@gmail.com


The Minnesota Theater Alliance acknowledges the significant past and ongoing labor by BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, people of color) arts groups and artists, and we seek to be in conversation with and supportive of this work as we move forward.
